Extremely bad
21 May 2006 | by (Basque Country) – See all my reviews

This movie is the worst movie i have seen in my whole life.

It have nothing to save, all is bad, the actors and the acting is comical, the make up sucks, the plot is totally predictable...nothing can be saved.

At least, the suffering ends after only 45 minutes, and seems that the director and the rest of the crew don't take the movie seriously.

I read somewhere that this movie is the first part of a hexalogy based in Hideshi Hino's tales...i hope the rest of the movies will be better...because if the are worst than this, this will be without a doubt the worst saga of horror films.
