The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Kaidan (2007)



Starring: Kumiko Aso, Takaaki Enoki
Director: Hideo Nakata


Premise:
A money lender is killed by samurai and dumped in a river. Years later, the son of the samurai falls in love with the daughter of the lender. However, the spirit of the dead is not far away.

My Take:
The movie has many different genres thrown in mix. Part modern ghost/supernatural tale and part ancient samurai movie with a decent dose of drama mixed in. The whole things works as far as it meshes well together yet, for reason it could not keep my full attention.

Rating: In the middle

Watched: Netflix DVD
