A Night of a Thousand Horror (Movies) #75

For the first time in a while, another anime which slides into horror, although in this case what I thought was a post-apocalyptic movie about a dangerous virus which turned people into stone and monsters rooming the Earth turned out to be something drastically different, involving allusions to fairy tales, sci-fi and a truck load of plot twists. If anything it shows how to never judge something from the initial plot synopsis let alone the cover.

Whether it actually works or not is to be found reading my review of King of Thorns here.
