Tales from the Darkside...but true from Japan
16 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First and foremost let me say, I do not scare or get creeped out easily, but this had me wide eyed and paranoid of what was lurking in the dark. I thought The Ring, Dark Water, an The Grudge were very BLAH movies, but this movie shows their roots and does it in a very creepy way. It contains multiple tales of paranormal experiences, which, at the very least, will give you chills. The special effects are cheesy in some places but they are very effective cheesy special effects. There are many different stories in this movie so I can't give you a true summary of the movie, but I will say it is worth a rental and most will find it worth it to buy. On the movie scale 8/10. On the horror movie scale 10/10.
