The stuff childhood nightmares are made of
9 January 2005 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

This was one of those TV-Shows you probably saw as a kid and never forgot. As far as I remember it focused on some special police unit in tokio which was up to investigate strange criminal cases.

Let's say a sort of X-Files decades before Scully and Mulder hit the road. What was burned into (not just) my brain where some images of a very creepy quality and some few scenes like: A little boy hypnotized to walk to the edge of a broken bridge by a bad guy.

A really scary witchlike creature appearing from the midst of a lake turning over a rowboat.

A magician doing a "houdini" and getting squished to a bloody pulp under water - still screaming and kicking.

I can only judge from some blurred memories, but some images still appear in my most interesting dreams so it seems this show really hit a point.

And to add to the confusion - I'm a big horrorfan and nothing really shocks me anymore. I watched the Exorcist first around the same time and even if it's still one of my alltime favourite movies none of it's images haunt me like this.

So the question is - with all the crap released on DVD now where are such items hidden? :(
