Yokai apparitions, ghosts and monsters from ancient Japanese myths and legends, are brought to life in this 4-film Collector Edition boxset from Arrow Video.

Yokai Monsters: 100 Monsters: a greedy slumlord’s attempts to forcefully evict his tenants invite the wrath of the titular spirits when a cleansing ritual is botched, with terrifying results.

Yokai Monsters: Spook Warfare: the tale of an evil Babylonian vampire inadvertently awoken by treasure hunters, and a brave samurai that teams with the Yokai to defeat the bloodthirsty demon.

Yokai Monsters: Along with Ghosts: (released only 12 months after 100 Monsters), the Yokai are roused to defend a young girl on the run from deadly yakuza.

The Great Yokai War: Decades later, none other than Takashi Miike (Audition) helmed a loose remake of Spook Warfare that used cutting-edge digital effects to renew the franchise for a new generation. In it, a young boy is given a grave responsibility: to band together with a group of Yokai to defend humanity against a vengeful and powerful demon that has sworn retribution against modern-day Japan.
