13 Days of Halloween with The Owl in the Rafters: Day 11
Today I'm going over a touchy title, often cited as a masterpiece of Japanese Horror, and at the same time notorious for disappointing viewers who go in with the wrong expectations: Audition. Although I actually question my ability to reach that proper balance of favorable impression without stepping into over-hype territory, I will try my damnedest to get it somewhere around that ballpark.

It must be ironic that despite the fact that 91.8 The Fan is an online radio station, we rarely write about music itself. Today I would like to amend that by highlighting a musical artist named Hiromi.

13 Days of Halloween with The Owl in the Rafters: Day 9
We've come quite a ways since this 13 Days of Halloween countdown started, and I'll admit Day 9 has been giving me a whole lot of trouble. I considered using Satoshi Kon's psychological thriller Perfect Blue, but I've sort of covered that before and I wanted something new. I considered another personal favorite, the little known Mononoke, but MollyBibbles covered that once already too.

13 Days of Halloween with The Owl in the Rafters: Day 8
Halloween countdown, Day 8: Today I'd like to step away from the monsters and the sci-fi and touch on a more modern take on horror. In the wake of the massively successful SAW film franchise the trend toward psychological thrillers, gruesome ultimatums, ultra-gore, and mind games became a major focus in some rings of the horror fan community.

13 Days of Halloween with The Owl in the Rafters: Day 6
Day 6 and we're finally into the heat of it! In the past decade the zombie trend has really spread like a plague itself, but what many film goers and videogame fans don't realize is that the zombies themselves aren't the element of the trend that makes it so sensational.

13 Days of Halloween with The Owl in the Rafters: Day 5
Today we're going over a shorter film, a 25 minute piece released in 2005 by CoMixWave inc., the small studio that was relatively unknown before they picked up young underdog director, Makoto Shinkai, whom I have covered once already, and recently a second time for the English premiere of his latest film at Otakon 2011.

13 Days of Halloween with the Owl in the Rafters: Day 3
Welcome to Day 3! Today's title? Jigoku Shoujo (Lit. "Hell Girl") I'll admit right off the bat that I feel like I'm taking a step backwards here in some ways. When it comes right down to it, going from the Vampire Hunter D movies to the Hell Girl anime is a definite drop in quality on most mechanical levels.
