Knife Spiralling into Horror and Insanity

Onryō is a mythological spirit from Japanese folklore who is able to return to the physical world in order to seek vengeance. While male onryō can be found, mainly in kabuki, the majority are women. Powerless in the physical world, they often suffer at the capricious whims of their male lovers. In death they become strong.
