America as J-Horror?

Now that the US Federal Reserve has reduced the interest rate to near zero, duplicating what happened in 1990s Japan, Crooks and Liars' John Amato, a self-described J-Horror fan, perspicaciously wonders whether Miike Takashi should not make a horror film about the American economy. If the Americans are doing remakes of not only J-Horror but also Japan's economic horrors,  maybe Miike (or Nakata) should counter with Ring 0 Interest Rate or Sukiyaki Economy Paulson?
