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

Miyuki is definitely worth checking out
17 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Gripped me totally. Loved the characters; Miyuki quietly sinister, Liam the misunderstood teenager, and finally the dad about as typical as a loup garou. All appeared normal on the surface - w/lots of abnormal tension brewing away beneath. Unlike other indie horror, I wasn't hit over the head w/hamburger meat grinding away but subtly lured into a unique and macabre story. Nicely shot and the music score was excellent.

Intelligent with just the right amount of kitsch and mayhem. I agree w/the other reviewer this film should be included in every DVD rental store horror section.
