According to my DVD, there are supposed to be framing segments with this, but I could never access them. As such, we have five separate stories. "The Spiderwoman" was my favorite, with some scary visuals and a fun story about the myth of the Spiderwoman. Not heavy on real spiders, which is a plus for an arachnophobe like me! "Crevices" could have worked as a longer film, and "The Sacrifice" was interesting but nothing special. "Blonde Kwaidan" was just silly and seemed to be missing a large portion of plot. I also found myself enjoying "Presentment," which concerned a rather unusual tour package.
"Dark Tales of Japan" is overall a decent intro to J-horror, but nothing to write home about.
