[It Came from Japan! is a series where I seek out and review the weirdest, most original and enjoyable titles that never left the Land of the Rising Sun.]
Distance has a way of making horrors insignificant. A car accident and a zombie may strike fear into the heart, but when viewed from a distance, these threats don’t seem all that real -- or, as real as a make-believe zombie can seem.
Unfortunately, keeping the horrors of Rougetsu Island at a distance is not an option.
In Fatal Frame IV, getting face to face with a ghost is the only thing that will save you, even if it makes your heart race to an uncomfortable degree. You could turn you head away as you approach, but you’d miss your target and, not to mention, the point of the game.
