Editorial Review

The series kicks off with "Ringu," the horror film that inspired the less-scary American movie "The Ring," on Oct. 12. The creepy comedy "Fine, Totally Fine" follows on Oct. 19. The final film is "The Great Yokai War" on Oct. 28, which finds a young boy teaming up with ghoulish spirits to fight an army of evil monsters.
