The terror out of Tokyo…

GHOST STORIES OF WANDERER AT HONJO

Held up against more famous Japanese ghost movies, Ghost Stories of Wanderer at Honjo probably seems a bit slight. But just because it doesn’t aspire to lofty or epic intentions doesn’t mean it’s not a great little movie. It fast paced and fun, low budget but well executed. I was very happy to stumble across it, partly because it was entertaining, and partly because if this one was out there, there must be more. The yokai may only have a cameo, but heck, they really only had a cameo in some of the later Daei films.

And in short…

HORROR OF SPIDER ISLAND
Maybe the quintessential old b movie

NEAR DARK
Definitely a quintessential vampire movie
