Eko Eko Azarak III: Misa The Dark Angel, 1998, directed by Katsuhito Ueno. A body in the morgue with a strange message leads Kuroi Misa (played by Hinako Saeki) to a school drama club where the students are rehearsing Wizard In Phantom World, a suspicious play.

Of the four of these that I've seen this one is the most fun, probably because Misa gets to use her powers for most of the movie. I imagine this must be closer to the comic. It's pretty uneven, it shifts gears between slow plot & character business, witch magic, and The Evil Dead, but I kinda liked that.

This is a follow-up to the 1997 TV series (and I've read it was possibly meant as the third season). English subtitles are available for only the first few episodes of that series, from what I can tell; I might watch it anyway (unsubbed) because I really enjoyed this movie.
