Hideo Nakata's Kaidan Reviews
This was a very good J-horror ghost story. If you're a fan of the genre, definitely seek this one out.
Kaidan starts off with a good strong back story, explaining how the Kaidan was created. Then it skips forward to present day, which takes place in the early centuries of Japan.
I would not recommend someone who is really desensitized and enjoys the Saw movies, or even movies such as The Grudge. While this movie has it's fair share of scares, to get to them you have to wait through a long amount of love story and plot.
However, if you are a deep person and enjoy movies with good plots and story lines, this movie is for you. It is beautiful in every sense of the word, with excellent use of symbolism and imagery.
I loved this movie and will treasure its message in my heart for as long as I live. I sincerely thank its creators for bringing such a beautiful masterpiece into the world.
