    Sexy and creepy with amazing black and white photography. I would put it in the same class as Kuroneko which shares the same director. A interesting mix of horror and samurai film. 7 years 6 months ago

    A really well paced film soaked in folklore. It's very clever and humorous, a little sexy at times too.

    Let this be a lesson to you everyone, don't give in to taboos. Haha.

    What an ending, the last 5 minutes are unforgettable.
