Masaki Kobayashi’s 1965 anthology film tells four separate stories of ghosts and demons, but it’s not really a horror movie. Rather, the segments are based on Irish-Greek writer Lafcadio Hearn’s retellings of Japanese folk tales, and they’re spooky and surreal rather than outright frightening. While the film moves incredibly slowly, the theatrically stylized sets and backdrops are jaw-dropping, and the result is hypnotic and dreamlike.
