Had some great moments, but suffered from feeling slow.
Marebito is the kind of horror film that relies on atmosphere and not loud noises to scare you. Sadly, the biggest problem with this film was its slow pace. It had some wonderfully interesting moments, but over all many scenes felt like they drag on. There's many different ways to interpret this film, which I love, and the ending is creepy enough to stay with you. I wish I was able to love this film, but I only loved specific moments, while the rest of the film left me underwhelmed. If you're looking for a unique Japanese horror film that will give you a major case of the creeps, check this out, but be prepared to be a little bored at times.
