Just in time for Halloween, I present to you my list of ESSENTIAL JAPANESE HORROR CINEMA at City on Fire.
Stretching from the silent era into the age of CGI and found footage, Japanese horror cinema always has something surprising to shock and delight us with. From ghost girls and giant monsters, to psycho killers and mushroom people, there is something for everyone on this list. I also attempt to provide extra background on Japan's masters of horror, like directors Takashi Miike, Hideo Nakata, Kiyoshi Kurosawa, and Teruo Ishii.

Blog notice: mostly this blog is for sharing my thoughts and talking about my books. From time to time I will also comment on books, films, music, sports, and/or videogames. During these times I may use images of the creative works under discussion. I'm posting the images under the "fair use" allowance, for purposes such as criticism, comments, reporting, teaching, and research. If you have any issue with images used on this blog, please contact me and the images will be removed.
I am not paid for my reviews and I do not take book review requests at this time.
