ゲゲゲの鬼太郎 千年呪い歌(Kitaro and the millenium curse)

En français
ゲゲゲの鬼太郎 千年呪い歌 (Kitaro and the millenium curse) is a Japanese movie from 2008 following a live-action relieved in 2007 (I hope to see that one soon). The story put in action the main characters of the manga series ゲゲゲの鬼太郎 by 水木 しげる (Mizuki Shigeru) created in 1959.

The main characters are 妖怪 (yokai) or demon spirits. The Yokai and humans have been at war for a long time and Kitaro and his tribe and friends are fighting for the peace. His group is composed of his father, 目玉のおやじ who looks like a walking eye, 猫娘 the cat girl, ねずみ男 the rat man, 砂かけ婆 the sand throwing hag, 子泣き爺, 一反木綿 the roll of cotton who flies the others every where they like, ぬりかべ plaster wall nice to hide behind in case of danger.
In the movie, they are trying to save a human girl from having her soul taken by a evil spirit called nure-onna. They will find out that the curse has to do with the love between a human and the yokai 1000 years ago.

When I started to watch this movie I didn't know what it was about and the first bit was a bit scary but after Kitaro and ねずみ男 appear it becomes a lot of fun. I like the yokai they are funny and ugly.
