Storyline

Miyuki tells the story of the McKenzie's, an American family who take in a young female Japanese exchange student. At first their expectations of a sweet and innocent Japanese girl are realized but soon strange things start to happen. Initially Miyuki provides support to the family but when Liam, the McKenzie's 18-year-old son suspects that Miyuki is behind the strange occurrences, the family turns on him. Leaving his family alone with Miyuki, Liam takes refuge at his eccentric uncle's home. Events turn for the worse at the McKenzie's as Miyuki's presence stirs up a painful past. Haunted by tragic visions from her childhood and images from a tragedy many hundreds of years ago Miyuki's dark past is slowly revealed. As Miyuki feels she is losing her adopted family once again she can no longer fight her urge to destroy what she cannot have. Through an unknown connection the McKenzie's fate is tied to that of Miyuki's. Written by Anonymous

Painful, slow and beyond "B" deep into "C"
2 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We had some decent expectations about this title, since Japanese horror has been releasing some excellent titles - this movie was not Japanese, and we knew this, but figured maybe it contained some of the very successful elements and pace from such movies. What a waste of time, acting, dialogue was incredibly poor and sloppy, the photography was decent but the characters felt hollow in between the beautiful sceneries. The character's relationships feel as dull as a rushed film student's sophomore's project... Technically - and this could be my on-demand provider - the audio was very low in level and we could barely get what the characters said at some points. poor movie, very low budget - which is fine if executed properly - but not in this case, it felt incredibly hollow and again, the incredibly poor acting felt like going to a blind dentist.
