Junji Ito Maniac receives a new trailer ahead of premiere

Junji Ito Maniac

A new trailer for Junji Ito Maniac: Japanese Tales of the Macabre showcases some of the scenes from the upcoming anthology series, as well as the opening theme. The Uzumaki anime is still in the works, but this is good too.

The upcoming anthology series includes multiple short stories from the many books of horror manga artist Junji Ito. Some of the stories featured include:

  • Bullied
  • Headless Statues
  • Ice Cream Bus
  • Intruder
  • Library of Illusions
  • The Hanging Balloons
  • The Long Hair in the Attic
  • The Room With 4 Walls
  • The Strange Hikizuri Siblings: The Séance
  • Tomie: Photo
  • Tombtown
  • Undendurable Labyrinth
  • Where the Sandman Lives

Personally I’m most excited for The Hanging Balloons. You can check out the new trailer and opening below.

Junji Ito Maniac: Japanese Tales of the Macabre will premiere on Netflix on January 19.
