    Hiruko the Goblin

    ★★★★

    I had a sneaking suspicion that I would like this film more today than I did when I first watched it some 20 years ago.

    Now, I've not seen this film since watching it in a theater in 1998, so I was a bit worried if it held up to my rosy memories. No worries, as this is…
