5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Japanese horror anthology March 23 2007
By S. Boone - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Prayer Beads is 9 tales of the dark and creepy, srrt of a "Tales from the Darkside" look and feel but more a "Masters Of Horror" mentality. Some of the tales seem overly ambitious, as in, there's almost too much crammed into a 30 minute segment and focus is lost, but that's a minor complaint. There's a couple that discover a vending machine in the middle of nowhere that dispenses questionable beverages, there's cute little seals that draw big crowds to a river and turn out to be nowhere near as cute as originally thought, and there's even a creepy "Hello Kitty" knock-off cartoon that appears on a young boy's computer and makes his wishes come true. All of these tales come off pretty well considering their origin, which is apparently Japanese TV (cable, I'd say, the language isn't always PC and the gore flies at times). A worthwhile anthology to fans of Japanese horror. 5 out of 5 stars.

3.0 out of 5 stars Has it's moments July 7 2007
By John816 - Published on Amazon.com

Prayer Beads is one of the better Japanese horror anthology tv series to come out in a while. Though it starts off slow and has many episodes not worth watching, there are some truly scary and original tales here. Definitely worth a look from the J-Horror fan.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok Horror But Not That Scary Aug. 6 2007
By Rich(Anime&Games Will Always Prevail!) - Published on Amazon.com

The series on this collection are about eight episodes 30 min each you only get japanese audio and english subtitles.The stories themselves are not all bad but don't expect to much horror scenes the one that seemed the most scary was the episode 'Cat's Paw' where a bullied boy with a bad home life goes onto his computer and gets an email to a website that says it well grant two wishes for free but the third one comes with a price and when you watch how his two wishes come out and what happens with the third one you well definitely feel for the kid Again except for a few episodes the series was not that great but if you're like me and have become a big fan of j-horror I say go ahead and try this one out
4.0 out of 5 stars Like any anthology, it has its highs and lows June 30 2013
By Eric J. Kerkove - Published on Amazon.com

To begin, I would like to say that this collection is a must have for any fan of Japanese horror given the amount of content for the listed price. It's just too much of a bargain to pass up.

As for the series itself, there are some really great episodes, a few that are so-so, and a few more which sort of leave you frowning as you turn off the DVD player. The production value is generally not very high, so the best episodes are those which are heavy on story and a little lighter on special effects. That said, there are a couple of tales which try to be a little deeper and more philosophical than they ultimately wind up being.

Which stories you enjoy the most is mostly a matter of taste and whether or not you favor a satisfying shudder of revulsion or a series of laughs at campy SFX and bizarre plot twists. Either way, you likely find a little of both in Prayer Beads.

4.0 out of 5 stars Prayer Beads Aug. 17 2008
By Marie Ezzo - Published on Amazon.com
I own it. It was pretty good. With some Asian horror movies the plots are hard to follow. But this was a series of short scary stories so I enjoyed them. Some stories were weird but others were very good. I was pleasantly surprised.
