Storyline

What if extensions carried the grudge of the individual to which the hair originally belonged and started attacking people wearing it at random? Customs agents discover a huge amount of human hair used as materials for 'hair extensions' along with the dead body of a young girl with a shaved head. With the corpse being soon transported by the police, the results of the autopsy determine that the woman's internal organs have been harvested. The possibility is pointed out that she was kidnapped in some foreign country and was a victim of black market human organ racketeering ring. A sinister, fearless smirk comes over Yamazaki (Ren Osugi), the morgue night watchman. Yuko (Chiaki Kuriyama) is a young wannabe hair stylist apprenticing at the Gilles de Rais hair salon. After working late each day, after returning home, she tirelessly practices her skills on head mannequins with wigs. One day, her sister, Kiyomi, forcibly entrusts her eight-year-old daughter, Mami, to Yuko. For some reason, ... Written by Grady Hendrix

Very good
7 October 2012 | by (Saint Paul, MN) – See all my reviews

Shion Sono is definitely one of the best current Japanese filmmakers. In this film, he takes a fairly banal J-horror set-up and produces something both horrific and beautiful. A morgue worker discovers a corpse that keeps growing hair. He steals it in order to harvest the hair, hoping to sell it to salons. Of course, the hair is murderous. Chiaki Kuriyama, best known as the teenage girl from the Crazy 88 gang in Kill Bill, Vol. 1, stars as a hair stylist who brings some of the extensions home. This would have been crap in most hands, but Sono is a master of suspense. There's also a lot of humor, although the villain of the picture gets to be perhaps a bit too silly in the climactic sequence.
