Cinema em Cena

Magnífico do ponto de vista estético, conta com uma direção de arte brilhante e quadros compostos com inspiração absoluta, além de ter um inventivo design de som. Mas a montagem adota um ritmo excessivamente arrastado que torna a narrativa entediante.

The first episode builds an effective mood through its elliptical action and long, slow tracks through empty rooms, but this 1965 film soon levels off into academic stylization.

We've grown accustomed to more violent, more suspenseful, and scarier stories than these, but there's no questioning the quality of this film.

A colorfully exotic offering but lacks the visceral power to explore the horror genre.

...the ghostly samurai court listening to Hoichi, and the samurai battle effectively form visual haikus that remain in the mind's eye

They're not likely to scare you outright, but hopefully you too can appreciate the craft and artistry with which they are told.

a visually ravishing film that uses dazzling color palettes and carefully composed widescreen photography to bring the viewer into an entirely supernatural world

Couple these sound effects and voices with some remarkable pictorial images and the consequence is a horror picture with an extraordinarily delicate and sensuous quality.

It can still hold its own against the new generation of horror films still sourcing it. Well worth a look.

Time Out

It is a compendium of four ghost stories adapted from Lafcadio Hearn, so determinedly aesthetic in their design and style that horror frissons hardly get a look in. Very beautiful, though.

Visually beautiful and with some cool special effects, this is a quartet of Japenese horror ghost stories that have very few scares, although there is the odd frisson of eeriness in a couple of them.

Kwaidan's haunting poetry is conveyed not only in its beautiful color images, but also through the chilling soundtrack.
