Storyline

Shogo (Ryuta Sato), the arrogant and condescending star of a popular call-in radio-show must temporarily broadcast out of Studio 6, a creepy and dilapidated booth abandoned since its last DJ committed suicide several years ago. Suddenly, Shogo begins receiving disturbing calls, the voice on the line whispers "Liar" over and over. Is the joke on him, has someone discovered the truth about his sinister past, or has the curse of Studio 6 been unleashed again? In this Booth, all sins will be atoned for. Written by Pony Canyon

Felt refreshed!
24 December 2014 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

Well, God and my friends sure know I had my share of bad Asian horrors, so thank you for delivering this little gem. It looks small but the potential is explored as much as its budget allowed it to.

Very few places used in this movie, either they had a lack of finances or maybe they just wanted to keep it small, so it can feel more personal, helping the viewer to connect more with the main character. Did it work? I think it was a direct hit! No point in saying too much about it, cause I fear I may reveal important details in it, thus I will do nothing more than recommend this one. It works as a horror, has some nice humorous lines in it and that good ol' twist at the end! So don't read too much into it, watch it and thank me later.

Cheers!
