Genki Christmas Season 2012

Genki Christmas Banner 2012

It is December and it is dark and it is cold and wet. One of the traditions in the UK around this time of year is to tell a ghost story. The BBC usually adapts an M.R. James story or a tale from Dickens. What will I be doing? Watching a lot of Korean horror movies. That sounds much better than going out, freezing to death and getting wet.

For the rest of December I will be reviewing K-horror classics like the first four entries in the Whispering Corridors series and Kim Jee-Woon’s A Tale of Two Sisters. I will also review other films like R–Point, Doll Master, The Cello, I Saw the Devil and Into the Mirror. My Korean movie list is about to get a major boost but I have been buying K-horror films like crazy for the last few months and I want to watch them!

In a venerable tradition (started last year), at the end of the month I will post my ‘best ofs’ in terms of video games, films and anime. My favourite game and anime TV series includes plenty of dead things but my favourite films, according to my Top Ten, is more life-affirming.

You can also expect a review of Berserk Golden Age Arc I: Egg of the King which I saw in a cinema last Saturday. Here is a quick review… ALMOST GOD TIER. OH GOD, THE RUSH OF ADRENALINE AS I RELIVED THE SAGA (which I only first tasted a few months back)! Here’s the intro of the film for you to get a taste:

There will be a lot of reviews this month.

    1. Thanks 🙂

      I look forward to watching the films! I suspect that the word ‘chilling’ will come up more than once in the reviews 😉

      I have Japanese class now! I have to catch the train!

    “It is December and it is dark and it is cold and wet.” You guys get pretty much the exact same weather we do! By the way…you know its snowing all over your site right? A ghost story at xmas time…what a delightful tradition!! Wow…I gotta admit that Berserk’s opening credit sequence is pretty nfity!

    1. Ah, we share a love of films and weather 😉 Indeed, it looks like we’re going to get snow this year. Speaking of snow..

      I do know that it is snowing on the site and it is very Christmassy – fun adjective!

      The Berserk movie is good but you might want to give the TV anime a try first. I’m even considering reading the manga because it looks brilliantly illustrated.
