Tame, But Enjoyable,
This review is from: Scary True Stories: Ten Haunting Tales from the Japanese Underground (DVD)
If you are looking to be scared out of your wits, this is not going to do it. Mentioning or comparing those two movies with this production is false advertising. These stories are allegedly true, but fall flat with cheesy special effects (the light emanating from a ghost is just a spotlight chasing people around) and tame plotlines. Not to mention every story is told by a girl, usually junior high age. Males exist only in supporting roles in two tales.
The stories are more relaxing than anything else. The slight spookiness here is best served as an appetizer for a truly terrifying film.
