On her way to school, high school girl Nana sees a train accident. Then Nana and her friend Kanae start to come across various bizarre phenomena, including red fingerprints and a female spirit who 'lives' on the station platform. One day, Nana's younger sister is lost, and the only possibility seems to be that she had been taken by these spirits. The missing tracks. The predictions that a mysterious woman makes.

Entertaining, but not scary
8 November 2010 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

This is a relatively nice movie for me. This movie deals a lot with friendship among two people, and really does remind me of One Missed Call Final. This movie is original. The entertaining scenes takes place in a train station. The opening scene in this movie is scary. I like the plot used in this movie. I like the cave like setting of this movie. I don't know why this movie is rated so low. The cave like setting for this movie and the use of the train station in this movie is very original. I love the ending in this movie. This movie is a little touching as well. However, there are flaws in this movie. The acting in this movie is a little poor. The GCI effects were very poor except for the last ten minutes. The whole movie was not scary at all. There were only two scenes that were scary. Tension and fear was not built very well in this movie. This movie becomes very melodramatic at times, and its pacing becomes just as slow as a snail,especially the scene where the girl calls her friend using the hand phone. This movie is one of the least scariest Japanese horror movies, but not the worst definitely. This movie shows that a good movie need not be scary. This movie is really entertaining and has some very interesting ideas, like the use of the bracelet being stuck to one of the girl's hand. The train station scene in this movie is nowhere as creepy or spooky as The Red Shoes. This movie is entertaining, though not as great as some of the other J-horrors such as Ringu, Ju-on or One Missed Call.
