this movie worth every minute i spent to watch it , brilliant direction and well organise mysterious story with many twists.its really shocking when you realise that this movie produce in 1976 ,such an amazing storytelling and effects with only simple camera moves .highly recommended . the unconventional story makes this movie more entertaining ,the pace of the story is quite slow in the beginning then gradually become fast that you need to go back in some parts of the movie to catch up with the events . I'm really a big fan to the classic Japanese horror movies ,but this one is totally exceptional and give you a different taste.
