Eerie Shadows Summary
Follow a community as it experiences strange and supernatural events filled with utter despair. Each unique story explores a different horror, be it evil spirits or ghostsINKR
Eerie Shadows features a multitude stories. there’s some very “basic” stories of ghosts or supernatural beings.
Other times, the stories aren’t exactly what you’re expecting.
Some are more basic in the horror-themes, which isn’t necessarily bad. Sometimes you just want shorter stories which are quick to the point.
One of the longer stories features some really messed up family dynamics. Our main character is a younger child, whom ends up being abused by some of the family members.
She also ends up seeing the mother-in-law abuse her mother. this is probably not good for the child’s mental health.
Needless to say, things go poorly for her and her family. All of the sudden, bad things start happening in the family and things come to a head.
There’s some paedophilic/Lolita themes, alongside mental abuse and murder. There’s not anything being shown, but the story is going towards those themes quite clearly (pedophilia/incest).
It’s a different story, for sure and I quite enjoy it. However, it’s definitely not anything for people who can’t deal with those topics due to whatever reasons.
Final thoughts: I really enjoyed this compilation, but some stories are better than others.
This is part of Otomenai’s horror month, where we share some interesting horror comics during the month of October.
