Nothing to see nightmares about
16 December 2006 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

Tales of Terror (Kaidan Shin Mimibukuro: gekijô-ban) is a collection of 33 short horror films from different Japanese directors. Among these horror films there are few more light hearted one's with bits of black comedy. All of them are made with very low budget so it can be seen in the quality (especially in the quality of special effects).

The word suspense would, in my opinion, describe better the contents of these stories. There's not much (as in: not at all) gore, blood, violence; only a couple of them hold enough horrific elements to actually be called horror. Mainly the stories are at most just thrilling or plain bizarre. Horror fans won't probably get too much out of these, but if one likes suspense, mysteries and Japanese oddities - this might be worth seeing.
