Koji Suzuki - biography, date of birth, place of birth, filmography, clips, writer.
Born May 13, 1957, Hamamatsu, Shizuoka, Japan - Japanese writer.
Graduated from Keio University with a degree in French literature. For his debut novel, Rakuen (1990), he won the Japan Fantasy Novel Award.
Based on the trilogy of Suzuki's bestsellers - "Ring" (1991), "Ring-2" (1994) and "Ring-3" (1998), popular TV shows and films are being shot. In addition to the aforementioned novels, Suzuki wrote The Walk of the Gods (2003), as well as the collection of stories Dark Waters (1996) and Ring-0 (Birth) (1999). The writer is currently working on a new horror novel. In addition, he is also interested in literature for children: he translates books by English-speaking authors into Japanese.
Since ancient times, it has been believed in Japan that the best time to meet ghosts is late at night. If it is raining, the chances of seeing a ghost are even higher.
“Walking along a river or a pond, you can experience the birth of ghosts,” says the writer Koji Suzuki. In his opinion, spirits or ghosts often come into confined wet spaces. So, in the cinematic version of the novel "The Bell" - the spirit of Sadako dwells at the well; in the collection of stories "Dark Waters", based on which the film of the same name was filmed, meetings with the restless also take place against the background of water.
The Japanese associate ghosts with moisture rather than dryness. Even in Western horror movies, the creepiness often happens in the bathroom. The audience of Japanese horror shudders with fear when they see a humid and stuffy place - an disembodied ghost may appear there. In The Call, the spirit enters the world through a videotape. The main character worries about her child, and the reader watches with growing horror as the spirit approaches them. The horror in The Bell is realistic and tangible, because the point of contact with the world of spirits becomes an everyday object. Such decisions are typical for Japanese horror, but it was Suzuki's work that sparked the popularity of this art throughout the world. Interestingly, the writer himself denies personal acquaintance with the spirits and claims that he does not believe in them - moreover, he does not even watch horror films.
Suzuki doesn't like traditional horror movies with horror horrors, fountains of blood and cheap sound effects. He doesn't even consider them scary.
