So-so, 3 January 2006
Author: haildevilman from Tokyo, Japan

The first half of this film is incredibly creepy. The suicides in the beginning separates by shots of solar flares and Ennio Morricone's suitably atmospheric music set the stage perfectly.

The scene in the autopsy room when the first corpse (the black man) suddenly smiles also send chills. As does the sudden close-up of the dead woman on the beach. The (real) photos of accident and murder victims in the 'death' museum was also a bit frightening.

After that...it all went downhill. The characters were hardly original. And they seemed to just add more of them for no reason. Add a new face, act like we've known him or her all along, then kill him off without warning.

I got the impression the director was told he had 48 hours to finish it or he loses his fee. So he packs the conclusion in a day. As a result, mass confusion. It should have been better.
