    It’s been quite a long time since I saw this one. I remember it being slow, but I think I preferred it to some edgier J-horror I saw later.

    One notable thing about it: all the stories come from the short story collection of the same name put together by Lafcadio Hearn, whom as you might guess from his name was not originally from Japan. But I suppose if he collected the best known Japanese ghost stories, it’s not that odd that someone setting out to film the same category would be likely to pick some of the same ones.
