To keep the mood on the set light, the actors and director would often joke around and attempt to frighten one another. This included a Karaoke session performed by Shimizu, Takashi on Kebbel, Arielle's birthday. See more »
When reading the diary, the characters read the book left to right, like a book written in English. Japanese, when written in tategaki format (top to bottom) or yokogaki (left to right), still is opened and paged right to left. However, the characters correctly read the printed book in the same scene. See more »
I just saw this movie and i have to say the movie was great, what was wrong, i know the movie began a bit "dumb" but it got btter and scarier.
First it begins with some bad acting like Christopher Cousins, when he was arguing with Jennifer Beals and where Jake went to Arielle Kebbel Room, And Edison Chen's.
But then every part was drop dead creepy, frighting, and makes you jump out of your seat. Amber Tamblyn and Sarah Gellar did a great job, also Kayko's mother. forget The gory films with cheap frights. The movie suspense, and they might not have lot of visuals effects, but Takashi Shimizu knew how to scare us. this is not The Ring ripoff it much much better, except for the long hair. but it's maybe Japanese culture. any way the movie was awesome.
