An eerie underrated masterpiece, 20 March 2007
Author: jjamesedw3 from United States

I remember seeing Blood Reign: Curse of the Yoma when I was just 11 years old and being scared not just by its dark, scary story. But, by that frightening theme song that just makes you want to cringe. Its like looking at a horror version of a drama that made you want to cry but at that same time gave you nightmares. The story is the main core of this movie. The story is about a Ninja who searches for his lost partner while also trying to fight an army of demonic forces that are controlled by a demon lord. The best part about this movie is the action that is combined with the gritty, bone chilling horror creating an animated feast fit for a king. My only pet peeve about Curse of the Yoma is the ending theme song. Which really throws me off. Its like throughout the whole entire movie, you are completely captivated by the engrossing horror of the film and you are entirely frightened by its beautiful opening. But then, it sounds like the movie takes a complete shift from the scary aspect of the movie with its poppy-ish ending, which I don't understand why Toho would want to do that. But aside from the ending, Blood Reign: Curse of the Yoma is hands-down the best anime movie of the 80s. I suggest to everyone that you rent it before you buy. Then, you will appreciate it more and buy it. I give this movie a nine out of ten.
