  1. Vania Zouravliov is an artist whose level of talent is ‘Formidable’ in every sense of the word. As for Kwaidan, if people were seriously looking for good Japanese ghost movies, they would skip past all this recent- dirty faced kid crawling out of computer screen bullshit and watch the mentioned film as well as Ugetsu.
