Storyline

When a television producer visits the home of a brother and sister to interview them for his series on paranormal phenomena, what first appears to be a simple case of psychopathology turns into a full-blown epidemic of demonic manifestation. To his horror he realizes that he is not only a witness to the blossoming insanity, filming each scream and horrific expression, but that he and his technology have been intricately tied to the cause and conduit of its spread.

Such a waste of time
17 September 2007 | by (Seattle, WA, United States) – See all my reviews

I've been told that many Japanese Horror Films are generally very good, at least better than the American Remakes. I can't say I've seen many, so my boyfriend was really excited to watch a Japanese Horror film with me and extol its virtues. He picked something he didn't know, but sounded interesting. Unfortunately, the box cover was the best part of the movie. The film itself was poorly written and probably heavily edited, leading to something incomprehensible and hard to follow. The first hour was slow and monotonous, the last 30 minute "climax" didn't make sense at all. It seemed rushed and had a lot cut out. Cinematography was obviously done by the director's 16 year old cousin, as it was cheaply made with poorly done cuts. Sets seemed to be temporarily borrowed from staff people's own homes and apartments. Sound quality was poor.

After watching it all, it has a pretty good idea behind it, if you can decipher what was probably the director's intent. Unfortunately what was presented was a complete waste of my time.

Don't bother watching if you can help it. You'll probably be disappointed.
