Amber M. from MORROW, GA
Reviewed on 11/14/2012...
The stories in this have great potential, but most are hampered by the quality of the CGI they used. The costumes are nicely done in the three history-related tales and the acting is fairly good, if a bit over-the-top in a few instances. The best segment in my opinion is "She-Bear"; that one didn't have to rely on much (if any) CGI, and the acting was top-notch.

Not the best Asian horror has to offer, but if you can ignore the CGI quality, it has promise.

Bravo! Splendid Japanese short stories

"Six short ghost stories, but each of them are very well done. My favorite ones are Peony Lamp and She Bears. I'm not going to tell you about the stories, but, especially She Bears, was frightening. But don't get me wrong, they ALL are great.

Good plots...and very very well acted! This is truly an awesome DVD--GET IT! I want to see more of these!

J-horror at its funniest ^_^

"This set of Stories are great, they are not scary but they are definetly entertaining to watch.

Some reviews say that these are not J-Horror, but they are, anything from the horror genre from japan is J-Horror (Japanese horror). Though the series will not scare you as much as the grudge but I can't think what else to say ^_^"
