4.0 out of 5 stars Creepy little compilation June 22, 2011
By C.B.
Verified Purchase
Like all compilations, this is uneven. There are stories present which are too abrupt or jarring (two guilty parties here), too unthreatening, or are completely uneventful and uninteresting ("Gloves" for instance).

That said there are gems here. "Night Watchman" is a strange way to open a series purporting to be about terror ... it's more amusing than anything. It is, however, quite entertaining, and you might get a chill or two along the way. The real standout, in my eyes, is "The Promise", which is both eerie and strangely touching and might have made a good full length film to allow for expanded character motivations. "Line of Sight", while perhaps too reminiscent of Ringu, also managed to give me a shiver or two.

In any case, this collection is worth checking out. You'll probably have your own idea as to which are worthwhile and which are not, but if you enjoy japanese ghost stories, you'll certainly get something out of it. If, however, you've never enjoyed films like Ringu and Ju-On, there's nothing here which will change your mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great if You Know What You Are Getting! October 9, 2009
By W. Hays
Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this "movie" and the tales of terror that came before it, but someone not knowing what they are getting could easily be disappointed. Imagine asking someone on the street to mention a scary story that happened to them. Now imagine you took that story and put it to video, along with similar stories, without embellishing it to follow some standard of dramatic storytelling. The endings can seem abrupt at times, and some jaded people may even say that the stories are not scary. If you were living the story, however, you would need a diaper and sprinter's shoes, much like if you decided to tag along with the Ghost Hunters and you heard or saw something unexplainable. I enjoy this for its insight into the modern folklore of the Japanese, and for sheer entertainment. If you want an actual dramatic horror film, look for Ringu or numerous other feature films. I you want an anthology of tales that might be told around a Japanese campfire, this is a great choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Creepy and that's how I love it~! August 11, 2007
By Joy
I love this movie! If you love Japanese Horror, then you'll enjoy this DVD. Like the series, the Tales of Terror from Tokyo: the movie has some really good, creepy, and down right mindbending stories. You'll be happy that you added it to your creepy, crawly collection~

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Japanese Horror Anthology August 22, 2010
By Kenoh
Tales of Terror From Tokyo and All Over Japan: The Movie is one of the best j-horror movies I have ever seen. Every short has something scary to offer (some also extremely funny if you find this kind of things funny), and extremely entertaining. I have watched and rewatched this thousands of times with my friends. If you're new to J-Horror GET IT, if you love J-Horror and haven't seen it yet, GET IT as well. Definitely a good movie to buy!
