Review: The Cursed House
It’s going to be hard to really review this without spoilers so I’ll keep it simple. A family who own a certain property have been cursed and they hire SPR to look into it. Unfortunately several members of the family are already possessed which leads to some very violent encounters. You can tell we’re at the final as the body count in this story stacks up and the number of spirits encountered is quite extraordinary.
One key event that I am going to mention is that Kazuya is possessed in this story arc and then knocked out and kept unconscious by Lin until he can be exorcised. While we’ve kind of had indications before that Kazuya must have been dangerous, this is the first time we are overtly told that he has power.
Needless to say, he’s in a bad mood when he does wake up.
I’m going to leave it there because anything else is going to spoil this final story for you.
- All of the characters get a moment to shine in this final story, including Ayako who has previously had very little chance to show off what she can do.
- It suitably ups the tension to leave us with a very satisfying conclusion to the series.
- Talk about leaving you wanting more. It feels like these characters are just touching the edge of their potential and we could learn so much more about them.
Overall, Ghost Hunt is a great mystery anime with a focus on the supernatural. Its episodic nature works in its favour when you only want to watch a couple of episodes and this allows you to see a whole story quickly.
If you’ve watched it before, let me know your thoughts on this series.
