"Ghost stories."

A series of four Japanese ghost stories written by American born Lafcadio Hearn of Greek-Irish descent who became a citizen of Japan in 1895. Put that in your pipe and smoke it. And I think the director of this film was smoking it, too, if you know what I mean. The sets are some of the most color-imbued, fantastical backgrounds ever to grace the celluloid. Creepy and highly visual. Probably worth seeing if you like that sort of thing.

Favorite Moments: The woman of the snow, Hoichi's singing.
