POWERFUL AND MEMORABLY INTENSE TALE OF TERROR.
21 November 2000 | by (CARDIFF,WALES) – See all my reviews

This is the best Japanese movie I have ever seen;it is a powerful and intense tale made in a style very reminiscent of Dario Argento,especially in its use of music.Whilst one might doubt the mentality of the characters in putting themselves in a position of such potentially great danger as they do here,I guess you have to accept it as there would be no movie.The killings are graphically and imaginatively portrayed and streets ahead of what you might see in a US movie of this type. The denouement is perhaps somewhat unoriginal but you can't have everything and as the events leading up to it are so well realised this is hardly a criticism.The leading actress is very good and this being a Japanese movie is not averse to supplying a few gratuitous pantyhose shots.Ah,those Japanese!All in all this is a superb introduction for anyone wishing to dip their toes into a particularly gory sub-genre of the exploitation field.8 out of 10.
