Corpse Party: Tortured Souls is the anime adaption of the RPG horror game: Corpse Party for the PSP. Corpse Party: Tortured Souls follows a group of students, who as a sign of friendship perform a ritual so they would always remain friends no matter what. Little did they know they would be spirited away to an alternate dimension with killer ghosts and dastardly plots.
The anime is a four part mini-series does its best to set the atmosphere of an abandoned school house to great effect, an excellent music score with well timed cuts sets a tone of suspense throughout the series.
The series story wise is well done, pacing out each scene so that everyone gets equal screen time, leaving you wondering just what might happen next. As with any horror story it’s best advised not to get too attached to any character just in case they meet a less then fortunate end.
Speaking of endings, Corpse Party: Tortured Souls ends off on a bit of a whimper, leaving us feeling a bit dissatisfied, but don’t let that stop you from enjoying this thrill ride of emotions!
