Jul 16, Chris Kiraly rated it really liked it. A competent, well put together horrpr of essay reflecting the broad themes that have impacted Japanese horror films from around to The essays focusing on earlier horror are stronger than the ones that approach the s and I found the analysis of Takashi Miike’s Audition to be a bit lacking in actual substance.
However the piece on Ringu and Ringu two is expertly written and the early chapter addressing the tropes of abandoned and avenging woman characters in films such as Kwaide A competent, well put together collection of essay reflecting the broad themes that have impacted Japanese horror films from around to However the piece on Ringu and Ringu two is expertly written and the early chapter addressing the tropes of abandoned and avenging woman characters in films such as Kwaiden is an extremely engrossing read.
Unfortunately the collection spends quite a bit of time on Battle Royale, which while I understand it’s importance not only in the beginning of Japanese and Jau horror proliferation within the United States, it stands hofror outside most conventional descriptions of what constitutes as a genuine horror film and I don’t think it fits well with the other essays in this collection.
However, I understand that film does have a very vocal following and is very critically admired, and I would imagine anyone not in academia picking this novel up would be most interested in it’s analysis.
Japanese Horror Cinema
The investigation into Japanese body horror though, is also a high point here, and overall I do think if you even have a passing familiarity with Japanese film and have an interest in horror there is something that you will find interesting and enjoyable. Sep 18, Caitlin rated it mctoy was ok Recommends it for: People looking for a cursory analysis of the genre.
While extensive and broad in its scope, this overview of Japanese horror films is about an inch deep with very mediocre analysis. You won’t get much more out of it other than the crude basics.
