Editorial Reviews

Tales From The Dead is anthology of four stories that looks at the quiet terror lurking inside the human soul, showing us that evil does not end when life departs. These original stories show us that life, and the inescapable agonies of the living, carry on into the next; well, life. Deception is as unavoidable as death, and so is payback. Under the supervision of young Tamika, a medium who has heard enough ghost confessions to understand the venom and malice of human souls, we meet a range of characters whose ails begin in life and carry on in death. A family, newly reunited with their estranged son, faces the remnants of the bad marriage, and evil intentions, of their home's previous owners. An old accountant, trying to set his ""books"" straight after a life of working for a criminal gang, takes his revenge on the man who wouldn't let him. A businessman, hungering for success and material opulence, finds that time is the only truly scarce resource - and the only one genuinely valuable. Lastly, a surprise ending for Shoko, a lady of leisure, who has a deadly definition of divorce, and meets young Tamika on the wrong dark and foggy road

3.0 out of 5 stars Thought-provoking tales but poor production quality April 3, 2010
"Tales from the Dead" is a trilogy of supernatural tales narrated by a mysterious female psychic Tamika when she picks up a female hitchhiker. The stories all revolve around the premise of greed and what happens to humans when they give in to greed. There is also a plot revolving around the hitchhiker herself, and she learns too late that it is not mere coincidence that led Tamika to give her a lift.

The stories are actually quite interesting, though there is an element of predictability in them. The production is obviously low-budget and the movie itself seems like a home-made production with rather grainy pictures and less than credible special effects/make-up. I would have given it two stars if not for the interesting stories. There are many other J-horror anthologies out there, and this is a rental at best. The dialogue is in Japanese with English subtitles. For those who'd like to watch some J-horror anthologies, check out:

3.0 out of 5 stars An American made Japanese horror movie March 27, 2010
Verified Purchase
This movie is in the style of current Japanese horror movies, and consists of a series of tales told by psychic as she drives a woman hitchhiker. The production is low-budget, but the stories are entertaining. The movie is in Japanese with English subtitles, and was shot on location - in California! This is most obvious in a cemetery scene - no typical Japanese cemetery looks like that. Most of the actors have typical Japanese names but don't look typically Japanese. More telling is their Japanese: Native Japanese speakers will immediately recognize that these actors do not speak phonetically the Japanese of native speakers, and may be sansei or other asians reasonably fluent in Japanese.

"Tales from the Dead" is more in the line of "The Twilight Zone." It is suspenful, leading reader to consider his/her own values and priorities. The acting, music and plots hold viewer's attention leaving one with the desire to see it more than once.
