The Great Yokai War

Here's a trailer for a Japanese movie. It looks a bit like Pan's Labyrinth, but with monsters from Japanese folklore like the Kappa. I'm hoping that the Kappa play a large part in the plotline, as they are a pretty bizarre creature.

Incidentally, if anyone wants to know more about the Kappa, here's a link:


  1. Yeah, that's an excellent site for understanding the other worldly creatures of Japan! It really helped me to understand the Jizo character in Japanese culture and in Ghibli's's a great treasure trove! That film looks unearthly and awesome!

  2. Hey Corey, Ha that looks like such a druggy film, ha ha!!! It looks good however it looks like the old style films and like Monkey Magic and the Kung Fu Films, I liked Kung Fu Hustle and Shaolin Soccer effects more however it looks good! Keep up the awesome posts, and I'll check out the Japanese Folklore, oh the good ol Folklore of different Countries, from Greek to Mongol, and Chinese to Japanese is there anything crazier or better, ha ha! It's cool for animation idea's I believe, ha ha. Also thanks for bloggin what's with the other class from third year never bloggin, ha ha! :)
