Arrow have released a new trailer for their upcoming Japanese boxset.

In the late 1960s, three movies were made featuring creatures from Japanese mythology known as yōkai. Arrow Video have collected the trilogy - 100 Monsters, Spook Warfare and Along With Ghosts - alongside Takashi Miike's The Great Yokai War, a loose remake of Spook Warfare, on blu-ray for the first time.

Arrow Video's Yokai Monsters Collection is on blu-ray from October 18th.

Check out the new trailer and artwork below.

The official synopsis reads:

In the first film in the trilogy, 100 Monsters, a greedy slumlord’s attempts to forcefully evict his tenants invite the wrath of the titular spirits when a cleansing ritual is botched, with terrifying results. The second film, Spook Warfare, tells the tale of an evil Babylonian vampire inadvertently awoken by treasure hunters, and a brave samurai that teams with the yokai to defeat the bloodthirsty demon. In the final film, Along with Ghosts (released only 12 months after 100 Monsters), the yokai are roused to defend a young girl on the run from deadly yakuza.

Decades later, none other than Takashi Miike (Audition) helmed The Great Yokai War, a loose remake of Spook Warfare that used cutting-edge digital effects to renew the franchise for a new generation. In it, a young boy is given a grave responsibility: to band together with a group of yokai to defend humanity against a vengeful and powerful demon that has sworn retribution against modern-day Japan.
