  1. Miguel Douglas's rating of the film The Demon

    A sad but fascinating look into the family unit and how familial allegiances often place one family member against another. Great directing by Nomura, who builds tension in regards to the fate of the children. Also an excellent performance by Ken Ogata who conveys a conflicted individual attempting to appease both his cruel wife and his children with tragic results.

  2. the_mentaculus's rating of the film The Demon

    One of Japan's obscurest masterpieces. An absolute horror, because it is all too plausible, hinting all the while that its social normalcy makes us complicit in its common madness. You feel a little bit of your soul escape by the film's end.

  6. Mathieu Langlois's rating of the film The Demon

    Damn it, I watched the wrong one—still, I really enjoyed this one.

  7. Checkpoint Charlie's rating of the film The Demon

    A truly appalling film, APPALLING in the sense of what depths Ken Ogata's character goes in order to mollify his sadistic, venomous wife, a horrid woman who could give Lady Macbeth a run for her money. A must-see for any fan of Japanese cinema.
