SPOILERS OBV been a long time but iirc the detective takes over the hypnosis guy's business, killings continue etc

missed this earlier, but yeah, more or less. the exact mechanics remain pretty obscure, but that seems to be the gist.

Anyone know a film where a ringu style girl suddenly appears out of nowhere and flies across the room at a dude sitting in a cafe or something? Haven't seen it and very unlikely to want to but the image is in my head from somewhere.

Omg that's it, thx. BUT NO THX - watched that clip with the sound off and pretty much through my fingers and it still freaked me out, lol. (loving the horror poll nevertheless!)

saw Shindo's Kuroneko in a 35mm scope print last night, a real hypnotic b&w vengeful female ghost story from '68. His Onibaba next.

Jess Nevins has an essay up on his patreon on Japanese horror cinema from 1898 to 1949.
