Storyline

Akira, a teacher from Tokyo, has just arrived in a small rural town to begin his new job. Soon after arriving, he meets, and begins to fall for, Miki, a papermaker and part of a large and unusual family. When he learns of an ancient legend that the family carries the curse of the Inugami, or Dog God, he brushes it off as silly superstition. After a series of mysterious deaths, however, the townspeople begin to grow restless, and Akira must confront the truth about Miki and her family. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Lots of threads
19 May 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I can't really make a fair comment on this film as I wasn't giving it my full attention, and I gave up on it halfway through.

I liked the way it looked, the mystery, and the exploration of Japanese traditions, history and equivalent of karma. These are all rolled in quite nicely with the horror, in this movie.

Though it seemed like it had a lot of threads, I followed the main ones very easily. There were some threads which I couldn't follow at all, and that's probably why I gave up on it.

Again, I wasn't giving it my full attention, and I'm not a particular fan of horror, so it may not be the film's fault.
