On Chinese Horror: Part I

This year’s Zhong Yuan or Ghost Month, took place in August, and Xia Yuan is not until December. Nevertheless, with the crisp scent and keenness of the autumn air, I feel the delicious anticipation for the Western festival of All Hallow’s Eve. Today I’m going to tell you a little about Chinese horror and Chinese attitude to ghosts, and throughout the month I’ll be writing about the Chinese horror genre in various art forms.
