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.
