dir. Masaki Kobayashi, Japan, 1965, 35mm, color, Japanese w/ English subtitles, 161 min.

Winner of the Special Jury Prize at Cannes, Kwaidan features four nightmarish tales in which terror thrives and demons lurk. Adapted from traditional Japanese ghost stories, this lavish, widescreen production drew extensively on Kobayashi’s own training as a student of painting and fine arts. Janus is proud to present Kwaidan in a new ravishing color transfer.
