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.

Kuroneko (1968)

Director: Kaneto Shindô

A mother and daughter are raped and killed by a group of samurai. Later a different group of samurai are found slaughtered in the area. A man is sent to investigate and stop what is obviously ghosts.

My Take:
A beautifully filmed movie with lucious black and whites and gorgeous shadows. A solid tale too with a good underlaying theme. Fans of subtle horror or old horror should seek this out this classic movie from Japan.

Rating: So Good
