8.4 / 10 (2112)


Four folk tales: a samurai marries for money with tragic results; a man stranded in a blizzard is rescued at a cost; blind musician Hoichi is forced to perform for an audience of ghosts; an author relates the story of a samurai who sees another warrior’s reflection in his teacup.

MUBI's take

From Masaki Kobayashi (Harakiri), one of the great formalists of classic Japanese cinema, comes a horror classic! A film of eerie atmosphere and widescreen visual wonder, Kwaidan plunges into myth and legend—and, true to the nature of ghost stories, is absolutely haunting.
