disgusting,horrifying and emotionless
22 February 2002 | by (guangzhou,China) – See all my reviews

If you never ever get close to the Japanese culture, you might find this movie a bit hard to understand. As an orient audience, I must believe i've been,to some extent,more familiar with the orient culture than the foreign audience. To be honest, i notice in the Japanese films,the mysterious occurrence, relating to the spirits or the dead,may result from the people's mental problems. As a result, the Japanese cult films are often characterized horrible and quite emotionless.
