Hideo Nakata's Curse, Death & Spirit Available Now

Before "Ringu" and "The Ring 2", director Hideo Nakata made a little gem for Japanese television called "Curse, Death & Spirit". It was a three-part anthology of short horror stories that appeared on a show called "True Horror Stories".

Story 1, “The Cursed Doll,” opens on Satomi, a girl who hears a voice calling her in her dreams. As she follows the voice, she finds that a doll appears to be the source—a doll carrying the spirit of her dead sister.

Story 2, “The Spirit of the Dead,” revolves around a widow who, following the death of her husband, takes her son on a camping trip. The family outing is disrupted by the appearance of a female specter who believes the boy to be her own.

Story 3, “The Haunted Inn,” begins when three girls decide to take a vacation at a traditional Japanese inn. Unaware of the tragedy that occurred there, they find themselves in the presence of a spirit who forces them to repeat the events of that day.
