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.

I was actually a bit impressed by this. Some of the stories are not really scary, but some of them actually do cause a little bit of an adrenaline rush. It really isn't that bad. I enjoyed watching this with a friend, even though some times we made fun of some stories, and other times we expressed our anger for neglected people. (Sort-of-Spoiler: One of the ghost stories is about a girl who died in a changing room at a community pool and no one realized she was gone.)

It's not incredibly scary. However, just for learning some about the culture, it's pretty neat. It kind of reminds me of the Are You Afraid of the Dark? series that I used to watch when I was younger, almost like it was made for kids. My teenage son doesn't find it scary at all.

The story lines are decent but the acting is sometimes cheesy. Ive been studying Japanese for 1.5 years now and loved this video because the dialogue is clear and slow enough to understand. Even if you're not studying Japanese I recommend this. Would make a unique and not too scary video for preteen slumber parties too :)

I really enjoyed this video. I also watch the ghosts on YouTube. I like watching and listening to real ghost stories and this is what this dvd has. If you do get this video, I hope you enjoy it!!!

Now just so you know a little about me, I love Japanese horror films and Japanese horror shorts, but this set of stories were really not that scary. There was possibly 2 or 3 out of the 10 that were good, but nothing special. If you're looking for a dvd with actually scary Japanese horror shorts I would go with Tales of Terror From Tokyo: The Movie (The Volume sets are really bad compared to the movie). However, if you REALLY love j-horror and have to watch it, get it.

Very short stories, But they make you think. We like Japanese Horror themed movies. Only Japanese culture would truly understand why.

If you love horror shorts, J-horror, and Urban legends then you can not go wrong with these scary true stories. A great collection.
