It was a pure cheese fest in the best way possible.
it's like Pokemon, but instead of being cute, they're terrifying. and instead of battling each other, they're driving the 1% insane to punish them for their greed. 10/5 stars
Unholy child / of Scooby-Doo's skylarking / and Kwaidan's folktales.
Excellent for getting into the Halloween mood. This movie has everything: a gallant ronin, kooky creepy monsters, class consciousness, and that beautiful old movie sound design. Without spoiling, there is a scene towards the end that is entrancing in its direction. Just a good time altogether.
