    "IMO Kwaidan is the least scary of the films on this list but then it is certainly haunting with four different stories based on Greek writer Lafcadio Hearn. Even if this is an old film i really enjoyed watching this. Among those stories my favourite one was about the story of Hoichi who is a blind biwa player who has to entertain a royal family but his friends think those might not be real people."
