"100 Tales of Horror" is the follow-up to "Onmyoji Abe no Seimei" in the Tuesday night "Super Jidaigeki" time slot. Computer graphics and special effects bring a new face to these stories of horror that have been told for many years.
Outline of Story 1 "Yotsuya Kaidan"
There are all kinds of people living in the back street tenement houses in old Edo. One of them is Ashiya Dosan, the descendant of an Onmyoji who made a name for himself back in the Heian period. Unfortunately, unlike his forefathers, Dosan hasn't made much of a living off the fortune telling and amulet peddling that he does.
One day, Dosan finds a slaughtered body along the edge of a pond in Yotsuya. It is the body of Iori Tamiya, the father-in-law of Iuemon Tamiya. Deeply saddened by the violent murder of her father, the enraged wife of Iuemon, Oiwa, begs her husband to seek revenge. Iuemon tells her "Your parents are just like my own," but in reality, he has no intention of doing anything. In fact, the entire reason that he married into the family 3 years ago was to get away from life as a samurai.
Kihei, Iuemon's boss had a mistress by the name of Okoto. In order to deceive his wife, who is crazed with jealousy, Kihei asks Iuemon to take Okoto as his bride. Knowing that Oiwa and her father Iori would get in the way of this, Iuemon takes the life of Iori.

Every storyline brought me back 100 years in time, i can say it's impressive that the characters really put themselves into their roles...and every episode has a different point of view to be projected.

I liked the theme of revenge, retribution and forgiveness. The ghosts are fierce but it's the humans who did wrong, that's why they are haunted by them.

I only got to watch Yousuke Kubozuka's episode.. the one where he becomes a werewolf or something. LOL. I didn't really get to follow this series.. most of the epis just seem to involve a long-haired woman dressed in white. (o.O)

Not the worst thing I've ever seen, but lets put it this way; I didn't finish all of the episodes.

Most of the stories aren't really scary unless the concept of ghosts and spirits give you goosebumps. I like the third story best.

Good entertainment. Story 1 and Story 2 were the best. Didn't like Story 6 and Story 8. The others were so-so.
