Decent horror anime, 18 April 2012
Author: Dave from Ottawa from Canada

Originally released on VHS in a subtitled version called Yoma: Curse of the Undead, this is a pretty decent entry in the anime horror genre. The main character is a young ninja on the trail of a childhood friend who just happens to be a powerful undead creature, with a multitude of lesser zombie freaks at his command. The action is bloody and the monsters are powerful and lethal, although a bit more creepy than terrifying. Japanese medieval folklore weaves its way through the story and undead spirits have a distinctly non-Western character, which makes this something other than just another ghost story.

Also notable is the haunting Ninja Counting Song which is repeated throughout the early part of the film. It is exquisitely beautiful and will play in your head for days afterward.
