Kwaidan - In A Cup of Tea (1964) - Color - 32 min

Kwaidan is a spooky classic from Japan. The 1964 film offers four short horror stories. This page features the fourth and final story of the movie and is called A Cup of Tea. A man pours himself a cup, and sees a man's reflection in the water smiling back at him. He dumps it out several times, but eventually drinks it all up. Hmmm... not a good idea, as it seems he may have quaffed the man's soul in the process.
