Combining his lifelong interest in Japanese tradition and his personal experiences with these vengeful spirits, author Zack Davisson launches an investigation into the origin, popularization, and continued existence of yurei. Juxtaposing historical documents and legends against contemporary yurei-based horror films such as The Ring, Davisson explores the persistence of this paranormal phenomenon in modern day Japan and its continued spread throughout the West. This book promises to be the definitive title on the subject.
