Beyond the Grave: Shinto and Buddhist Influences in Japanese Horror Films and Manga.

Abstract

This dissertation aims to critically analyse the Shinto and Buddhist influences in Japanese horror films and manga (comics). By examining examples in detailed case studies, my aim is to achieve a deeper understanding into the influence Shinto and Buddhism have had on the formation of Japan’s unique cultural concerns. The findings aim to help fill a current gap in the academic field concerning Japanese modern arts and an understanding of their religious influences.
