The J-Horror Virus

Nippon Docs   ¾ 

Flickering TVs, disturbing sounds, faces distorted with fear: In the mid-1990s, young directors reinterpreted the classic Japanese horror film. Sarah APPLETON and Jasper SHARP dedicate their documentary to central J-horror filmmakers such as Takashi SHIMIZU (JU-ON) and Kiyoshi KUROSAWA (PULSE), exploring the genesis of the genre.
