Not really horror but is worth a watch from horror fans.
12 March 2011 | by (Manila, Philippines) – See all my reviews

Zoo is composed 5 movie segments that focuses not on the "dark side" of death but on its "dramatic" sense. These stories are composed of some elements that makes the film boring but overall it's a unique one and the stories are made to be touching.

"Zoo" segment could have showed more plot because it had the strongest shade of horror but unfortunately it came out boring because of lack of plot. It's just about a man who murdered his lover at a zoo. The other stories are different from this (every story is different from the others, though) because they turn out to have no connection with a zoo park. "Hidamari no shi" is the animated segment of the movie. It doesn't appeal that much to viewers although it's an anime so twenty minutes is a smart length for the segment. "Kazari and Yoko" is the first part of the movie and it's a good start. It's about identical twin sisters Kazari and Yoko who differs almost exactly from one another. One is treated like an animal and the other is loved by their mother. Yoko, the maltreated one, some time had the chance of changing herself and a twist, which I didn't actually understand, changed the way her mother lives with her. "SO-far" is a nice segment and is of a nice twist. A child sees that his mother cannot see his father and his father cannot see or hear her mother, one night when they returned home. Lastly, "Seven Rooms" is the strongest of the five. The seven rooms were filled with one woman each, each day and they're being killed after six days of stay. Satoshi and his sister finds their way out of the room and the reason why they're brought there. This is a simple segment and is kinda incomplete but for me, it's the best.

Overall, it's worth a watch and a review! 7/10
