Most time you think about movies and asia you think about Hongkong, China, South Korea and Japan. Never the less movies are made in Taiwan, too.

One is Blood Red Fear which is out on DVD at amazon. http://www.amazon.com/Blood-Red-Fear-2DVD-Version/dp/B001B8E3RQ/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1262702497&sr=8-4

A virus mutation led to the death of 22 million people in Taiwan. The islandĀ“s population is gone. Only known survivor is 20 year old Yvonne together with her female friend Ace. Walking the streets of Taipei alone. But Yvonne heavily traumatized from past experiences cannot stand the pressure anymore. She slowly moves into a mental state of madness. Loosing more and more contact with reality as the ghosts of her past start to reappear.

There are a bunch of great Taiwenese directors. I am partial to Edward Yang, Ming-liang Tsai, and Hsiao-hsien Hou.
