(Vukekpar/leweb) La J-Horror est très intéressante en ce qu'elle a su proposer de véritables œuvres expérimentales (comme l'intriguant Kyofu de 2010). T. Shimizu (solide réalisateur des "Ju-On" mais aussi de l'excellent "Rétribution" en 2005) nous propose ici une odyssée surprenante, à la frontière de la folie, des récits de vampires, ms aussi des univers lovecraftiens (!) - et transcende un budget sans doute minime.
A very surreal Odyssey of a study into the mind-movie integrated live's we all live and what it's doing to us. A wonderful movie with a very strong atmosphere to it and some very true to modern life cyberpunk elements. The soundtrack does a very good job at heightening tension when the scene calls for it and the actors do a wonderful job at conveying strong emotion through minimal (to no dialogue). A worthwhile film
this is one of those films where you watch it and afterwards you are unsure if you liked it or not..
i'm still in that phase. but ill have to agree it had some good idea's in it and it did have a sense of shock value in it. not your standard japanese ghost story.
3 stars for me. mostly cause its original..
Interesting, but flawed movie. Vampire movie, an exploration of voyeurism, and some Hollow Earth theory thrown in for laughs, this movie is about as fractured as a movie about all of these things can be without flying apart.
Shinya Tsukamoto puts in a great performance, and the movie goes through many changes and deformations and somehow retains its own identity. Recommended.
Rodado em apenas 8 dias, durante o intervalo entre as filmagens de THE GRUDGE original e sua refilmagem americana, este filme de baixíssimo orçamento de Shimizu realizado em DV, mistura Lovecraft, A PEQUENA LOJA DOS HORRORES, vampiros, Cronenberg, Clive Barker e diversas outras influências e citações para questionar/reafirmar o video enquanto registro da verdade. Aspect ratio: 1.75:1
