31 Weird Tales: Spook Warfare

From Japan comes an absolutely delightful marvel about some local spirits taking on an unwelcome visitor. Yokai are creatures from Japanese folklore that can take the can take the form of anything from a fire breathing turtle man to a pretty girl with a hideous second face on the back of her head. Usually benign, they realize their reputation is at stake when Pazuzu washes ashore to show them what's what and they decide a counter attack is their only hope. A mere synopsis can't do justice to just how wonderfully strange and genuinely other worldly this is. Listen for what goes bump in the night and check it out.
