Yume Nikki Dream Diary Review
What is it about the Japanese culture that makes its horror and psychological thrillers so unsettling? Is it the oppressive atmosphere that builds suspense over agonizingly long periods of time? Is it the culture’s inherent spirituality, of stories about various spirits and oni affecting people?
