Editorial Reviews

TALES OF TERROR 1 & 2 -While some stories may seem too fantastic to believe, many come from the most horrifying of sources The Truth! Step into places not meant for the living. Witness psychological horrors that rattle the nerves. All brought to spine-tingling life by Japan's up-and-coming masters of horror, including Takashi Shimizu and Norio Tsuruta. Can your fragile psyche withstand these twisted Tales of Terror? TALES OF TERROR 3 -Just because the gates to the spirit world are usually kept shut does not mean that they cannot suddenly open, that the dead cannot reach out for your throat, that its denizens cannot prowl in abandoned office buildings, or haunt high school video projects. The dark realm is with you, and within you, its emotions calling to you in shades of horror, of fear, of terror. Writers Kihara Hirokatsu and Nakayama Ichiro have collected these Tales of Terror from accounts told to them as true all over Japan. TALES OF TERROR 4 -When the spirit world crosses over into the real world, will you be perceptive enough to notice? Everyday, we encounter strange occurrences and unreal phenomena that either go unnoticed or get dismissed. But those that do notice are changed forever. Some begin questioning what is real, some are driven to madness.

5.0 out of 5 stars HORROR FROM THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD December 6, 2009
Verified Purchase
Normally I would never buy a subtitled film. I don't like reading subtitles and I always feel that there is something lost in the translation. However, this one is different.

This is not a set of feature movies. Tales Of Terror is an anthology of short horror films and vignettes, some as short as merely 5 or 6 minutes, some as long as 20 minutes. The location and language is Japanese, but there is very little need to read subtitles in this. The eeriness of these short sagas is gripping and requires little dialog to relate.

The stories range from stark horror, to merely strange, and a few are even humorous. Most of these tales center around strange apparitions or hauntings, and many of them involve doors and what might be lurking on the other side. The film director Takashi Shimizu ( director of hit movie The Grudge ) among several other directors make very effective use of hidden horror in these films. The buildup of tension as to what it is making that noise just on the other side of the door, rattling the door handle, rasping in a hoarse voice to be let in..., it does send shivers down your spine. These are not blood-soaked films, though there is plenty of implied violence occuring. Things happen, like elevator doors opening to reveal strange somber people asking a young girl if she's going down, but she's already on the lowest floor of the building. Or a child hearing a knock at the door that neither her mother or sister seems to hear, and a strange voice on the other side claiming to be a relative asking to be let in, but instinct tells the child this person at the door is not who she claims to be.
