Ring by Koji Suzuki (started)

Japanese Female Demon
The Hannya mask with its horns and sharp fangs is probably the best known of all Noh masks. The mask expresses the fury of a woman turned demon through jealousy and anger and who revenges by attacking.

I read the first part of this Japanese Horror just to get a flavor for the book. The mask pictured here was mentioned so I googled to see what it looks like. The image was effective is giving a boost of adrenaline. Scary demon!

The description of the mask sets up the story up pretty well for me. I watched the American version of the movie and remember an angry female spirit.

I'll finish up with this book by the end of the week for a proper review.

*total pages read: 56

  4. Yeah, that's slightly disturbing.

  5. My hubby lived in Japan for two years so he's gotten me into some Anime and other things! I've heard of the American version of the movie, but haven't seen it!
