Storyline

A murderous ghost returns to a small Japanese town after a twenty seven-year respite in director Koji Shiraishi's low-budget tale of supernatural terror. It was nearly three decades ago that the town of Midoriyama fell prey to a demonic, scissor-wielding entity whose horribly slashed visage was covered by a paper surgical mask. It was said that once one heard her ethereal cough, their doom was imminent. Her horrific slayings always coinciding with physical punishment inflicted by mothers on their helpless children, the vengeful specter is rumored to have reappeared as of late and divorced teacher Ms. Yamashita (Erika Sato) is about to discover just how deadly it can be to raise a stern hand to your children in Midoriyama.

To call this a horror film is really stretching it. Yes, there is a long-haired creature (sound familiar) targeting couples as they make love. She kills one, and then targets the other as they have sex with another partner.

So, a half dozen attacks means a half dozen sex scenes. Thiss is what is known as pinku in the Japanese movie market. If you are not into soft core sex scenes, then you may want to watch films like The Ring, The Grudge, or One Missed Call. all remade Japanese films. This film was even remade as Carved, which I hear focuses more on horror than sex. I'll have to check it out.

One of the interesting features of the movie is that the sounds of fear as the slit-mouthed woman approaches are exactly like the sounds of orgasm during the sex.
