Audience Reviews for Kaidan


Kaidan (which I believe is Japanese for "Curse" or "Ghost") is a great, creepy freakish Japanese movie directed by Hideo Nakata! If you like "obsession" and "love me even to my grave" kinda movies...this one is right up your alley. Set in the age of the Samurai in old Tokyo, a man is cursed by his lover on her death bed never to love or marry again or she'll kill the women. She lives up to her promise even in the grave! Great dark, moody movie and well written! Defintely worth your 2 hours of watching!

A masterpiece. A must-see for Japanese ghost story fans. A superb drama that bears repeat viewings.

I didn't expect much of it, so I wasn't really that disappointed to begin with. I just couldn't get past that guys face! It's just begging for a punch in the nose! It's a Japanese Ghost story, which I'm a great fan of, but the style and the acting didn't quite catch the essence or vibe of it. It didn't even come near the beautiful an genius Kwaidan by Masaki Kobayashi.
