The Janus Collection
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.
