This unsettling anthology tells 20 short stories by horror manga creator Junji Ito in anime form.
Miko is a typical high school student whose life turns upside down when she suddenly starts to see gruesome and hideous monsters.

The mysterious, yellow-masked Storyteller is a man whose true name and origin are both unknown. He appears at dusk where children gather and recites sinister tales based on Japanese urban legends, to which his young audience eerily intakes. However, the Storyteller is no ordinary teller of tales. He incorporates a kamishibai, a traditional paper-scrolling device, to add visuals to his already demented narration.
