Creepy, but pointless
30 May 2002 | by (San Francisco, CA) – See all my reviews

Lots of effective, creepy moments building up in the first 2/3 of the film, but seems to putter out after that. Solid performances and great handling of the "movie within a movie (within another movie?)". Still, a good first effort from director Hideo Nakata ("Ring").
