After oh 700 pages of Tomie cutting up her boyfriends' parts, this third volume in Ito's Terror series (sadly, the last as well) is kind of refreshing in that it focuses on stories where gore & shock isn't the focus. Most of these stories are from the late 80's to 1990. "Den of the Sleep Demon," and "The Long Hair in the Attic" are here because they're expected; typical stories of a characters myopia becoming their demise. The freak-out stories with blood and flesh. "Den" is especially grues ...more

Someone (Jesse Bullington, I think) suggested I check out Junji Ito ages ago, and I just now got around to it. Sad that I put it off so long, because this collection, at least, was pretty great. I'll definitely be tracking down the others.

It's a combo of fairly typical horror stuff, fairly typical J-horror stuff, and totally weird stuff, but it all has a pretty unique feel, and it's all carried off really deftly, pulling out some seriously disturbing images, scenes, and transitions, while still

Recommends it for: Those who like ghosts and goblins, comic books.
The third (and final?) installment of the Museum of Terror series, it was the most saddening of all. Tomie is, for some reason, absent from all of the short stories, and that upset me greatly. The first story, and a few others, sparked a bit more fear and morbid fascination in me than did in the second book, however, which is why it gets a higher rating. While it's still got a bit of that gorey charm present in the previous two stories, it lacks Tomie, and reads more like a traditional Japanese ...more

Terrific art and some pretty solid horror stories. I'm officially sold on Ito's stuff.
The horror fare in this anthology is imaginative, centered-it seems-on one or two vivid, memorable images in each tale. Though the short-story genre is riddled with these gimmicky hooks (as opposed to stories that are well-planned and satisfying throughout rather than centered on a single experiential hook), in the graphic format these images provide substantial foundation around which the exposition quivers uneasily. Tense, fun, indulgent late-night horror reading!

Out of the entire series, I thought that this one had the weakest stories. There was no central theme this time, so it was just a completely different story without any basic united theme. The stories were ok, with one or two that really stood out (unbearable maze was pretty great). A good way to kill some time randomly, but not something that is that hard to put down.

A somewhat hit and miss collection of short horror stories from master Junji Ito himself. There are many really innovative ideas here, but somehow even the most original ideas have turned into stories that are too easy to forget. The collection is an interesting one, smarter than the average horror outing but still nothing that really stands out.
When junji met scary. Does it rhyme? May be not, eh :-)

Suima no heya was my all time favorite. The way the two of them trying to pull the fingers back out was so hillarious.

Yane ura no nagakami was the creepiest. The way the rats entangled in the hair. Yeouw.....

Chichi no kokoro was....sad.

Excellent collection of short horror stories by Japanese horror-manga master Junji Ito. Definitely one to have if you enjoyed Uzumaki.

Junji Itō Born in Gifu Prefecture in 1963, he was inspired from a young age by his older sister's drawing and Kazuo Umezu's comics and thus took an interest in drawing horror comics himself. Nevertheless, upon graduation he trained as a dental technician, and until the early 1990s he juggled his dental career with his increasingly successful hobby — even after being selected as the winner of the p ...more
