You Gotta Love It When Filmmakers Show No Mercy To the Short Attention Spans of Mainstream Cinephiles, 24 March 2010
Author: chinilla1010 from N. Korea

Ever imagine what it would be like to play hide and seek with a hot female assassin? Well, you're about to find out in this solid creepfest from our friends in the Far East.

This is vintage J-horror with all the positive characteristics that one expects from filmmakers who don't seem to care at all about the short attention spans of mainstream cinephiles. The opening scene is an accurate representation of the entire film: very quiet and deliberately paced with an overwhelmingly ominous mood. Such is the case from start to finish in this no nonsense genre outing that just relentlessly piles on the gloom and doom. Like "Nightmare Detective 2" (2008) and "Ju On: The Grudge" (2003), "Naked Killer" is jam-packed with sequences that move as slow as molasses in January but are nevertheless gripping and entertaining.

There are a few effective nude scenes tossed in for good measure, but these aren't "fake" scenes because they occur in situations of real danger. The girl killers makes some appearances, but the pre-game rituals (involving dolls, salt water, rice, etc.) contribute some welcome novelty and help this movie to carve out its own niche. The scoring is also fantastic and likely the strongest element.

I personally love stuff like this. No obnoxious characters, no superfluous filler material, no comedy, no fake jump scares, no flash editing, no teenie bopper dialogue, and – most importantly – no cheap attempts to "keep the audience awake." There's nothing worse than being deprived of being fully absorbed into a horrific atmosphere than having the filmmaker insert a loud "BOOM" or chuck in some cheap sex talk to "liven things up." No thank you, dear sir. I'm one of those moviegoers who likes to be systematically worn down and beaten to a pulp by unyielding, ruthless dreariness. Too bad most American filmmakers are too timid to go the distance.
