Kwaidan | Chicago Reader

Kwaidan

Artsy, muted horror anthology from Japan, based on four ghost stories by Lafcadio Hearn. The first episode builds an effective mood through its elliptical action and long, slow tracks through empty rooms, but this 1965 film soon levels off into academic stylization. Masaki Kobayashi directed; in Japanese with subtitles. 164 min.
