The two modern pillars of J-Horror are here, Ringu (1998) and Ju-on: The Grudge (2002)! We talk Shinto, Buddhism, monsters, spirits, and 'ghosts in machines'!
This first installment of our J HORROR series takes us to some weird places. We start with Japanese cultural aesthetics, and by the end are talking about Cyberpunk Dadaist music styles. All the while, we discuss 1977's House, and Shin'ya Tsukamoto's Tetsuo, the Iron Man (1989).
