Fast paced creepy odd funny well worth a look
8 May 2006 | by (French Polynesia) – See all my reviews

If you're tired of little girls with long dark hair, this is something quite different for horror fans and Japanese horror fans. Though most look to be shot of video, which I know some people find off putting, the acting and production values and the FX, both make-up are well done. More creative than the American Masters of Horror series,though these are shorter some being under 20 minutes long and it's easier to support that shorter running time. Though there are funny moments in them they never go totally into a comedy pay off. This is really diverting stuff, imaginative, check it out.

Giant heads, curses, evil blonds, elevators, spider people, a wide range of locations and types of stories. Music from The Amityville Horror shows up in one episode, rather strangely actually. No nudity but there is gore in decent amounts.
