Abstract

The Japanese horror game (J-Horror) was well established by the 1960s. Nakagawa Nobuo's Jigoku (1960), Kobayashi Masaki;s Kwaidan (1964) and Shindo Kaneto's Onibaba (1964) has already achieved cut status. But it wasn't until the release of The Exorcist (1973) in the 1970s that a horror film captured and terrified worldwide audiences. The classic film's visual effects redefined the genre. Who could forget Linda Blair's 180 degree head turn or her spider-like climb to the ceiling? These two streams of horror films were the major influences on director Kuei Chih-hung.
