Quite enjoyable albeit a bit cheap looking.
23 October 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I agree with the other reviewer--when you first begin watching "Curse, Death & Spirit" it does look a bit cheap. It certainly has a direct to video look about it--like it was made using inexpensive home video equipment. But don't let that fool you--this IS a quality product. The film is divided into three stories--each about 20 minutes long and each about the supernatural. Of the three, the first is probably the best (and creepiest) but they are all quite entertaining.

The Cursed Doll--A young lady keeps having dreams about a strange doll that seems almost alive. Later, in a weird twist, her parents give her a present--this SAME doll! However, there's much more to it than that--through continued dreams, the young lady comes to believe that she once had an older sister who died long ago. And, when she asks her mother, she learns that this IS true! What's going on here?! And, how is this doll related to her dead sister? The Spirit of the Dead--This segment begins with a father dying from a heart attack. However, the young son sees his father's spirit leave the body and say goodbye--and it seems the boy has some sort of connection with spirits. Later, when the mother takes the boy on an outing, this ability arises again, as the boy begins seeing a dead woman in a pool beckoning to him! Well, the mother doesn't believe it at first, but soon she, too, sees the dead woman calling to the boy.

The Haunted Inn--Three young ladies go on a short trip to the country and they stay at an inn. One of the girls begins acting strangely--as if SOMETHING in the inn is calling to her. They soon find out that a young girl died there in that same room a decade ago and somehow it's reaching out to the girl.

I could certainly say more about these films but don't want to spoil the suspense. While none of the sequences are marvelous, all are quite good and give the viewer insights into the Japanese psyche and beliefs about the spiritual world. Well worth seeing.
