You can sneak into the life of Japan’s scariest ghost on Instagram. Kayako now has a horror kawaii Instagram page.
In Japanese, there is one word, Kowakawaii, which is the mixture of the words “scary” and “cute”. Well, we think we can not find a scariest Instagram page than this. We found you one of the most frightening Japanese ghosts, Kayako.
But who is Kayako?
You have to know that the famous chin-white, big-eyed evil spirit known from the classic Japanese horror film Ju-on (The Grudge) certainly has a horror kawaii Instagram page.
Takashi Shimizu’s phenomenal horror was made in the early 2000s. Hollywood soon became aware of the success of the film. In 2004, after the second part of Ju-on, the film “Curse” was born, which is an American edition of the film, and was also produced by Japanese director Shimizu. Most people are unfamiliar with the original work because they have only seen a movie with Buffy.
Japanese film production stands for quality. There have been many creations that have given us a lasting experience. Breaking down by genre, horror/thriller is one in which they have a high profile due to their unique style. Many people find them sick, which is understandable, but we’d rather call them brave. They are not afraid of scaring people, they are not afraid to cross certain boundaries. They often reach the top of shivering by applying makeup or playing sounds. And yes, Ju is a movie like this.
Something terrible happened somewhere in a house in Japan. Nobody suspects that evil forces are in the house, and when someone puts their feet there, there is no escape. Supernatural powers emerge from nowhere and attack victims …
Shimizu did not have an easy job as he had little money to carry out the project, but in our opinion, he brought the maximum out of his potential. Instead of CGI, he tried to impress the audience with real effects like makeup and music, and he succeeded. We are not the scary type. We don’t fear average horror movies. But here, in this case, anxiety has happened to us.
The Grudge and the Curse (We take them together now) managed to make us feel fear for a movie. Rarely, but Shimizu did it, and that’s why the applause for him comes from us.
The most positive thing is that he did not use schematic scary scenes. He also smuggled these in some situations where we don’t expect them. For example in an insignificant detail where at first we believe that nothing is happening, but there will be evil and it will appear. Many times he didn’t use sound effects which just made the scene more grinding. We just saw the evil in a flash and we think that it was a big weapon during the movie.
Also, in a relatively gloomy, grayish world, the appearance of a white-faced, black-eyed little kid was just top of the mountain.
But Why Is Somebody Dressed Up as Evil from the Japanese Horror Movie? Why Do They Make an Instagram Page for This?
Well, the answer is very simple and also cute in some ways. It’s is just a funny thing between a son and father. The father figured it out to entertain people with his adventures with his son, Toshio, such as posing in the park, at the breakfast table, in the garden, or at the beautiful flowering cherry tree, but in a different way. On the other hand, this unusual Instagram page was created to help Sadako vs. Kayako, an upcoming horror-comedy show, in which the two evil female souls known from Japanese horror films intertwine.
