Kiyoshi Kurosawa, who gave us Doppelganger, Pulse, and Cure, shows that he is a master of suspense and horror.
Some describe this as an homage to 80's slasher films, but I felt a more honest description might go further back to film noir. There was a slow pace and a steady creepy musical score throughout until towards the end when the bodies start really piling up.
To describe it as slasher is a slight misnomer as he usually uses a pipe.
It is almost a Godzilla-like thriller as the killer is huge. He is a sumo wrestler, but not in the usual way you think of them. He is extremely tall instead of being round.
The creative use of a locker may cause panic to all the geeks who got locked in one in high school.
And, you may not want to work overtime after seeing this.
