Wonderful Japanese movie
16 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie in FYE and it kinda grabbed me. At the time I was really getting into Japanese horror, so the fact I knew nothing about it didn't stop me as that's what it was. So I bought it and immediately watched it when I got home. And I ended being very pleased. You see this isn't your average Japanese horror movie. This isn't about a dead girl coming back with her long black hair covering her face to appear creepy. Nope, this one's about the girl who will never die! Now granted it was a little slow, and after reading the manga it doesn't really seem to follow the story very well. But I still enjoyed it, as it did have a good story, and a few good murders as well. The reason I only give it an 8 is because, well, I think most of the sequels are better.
