Orochi is a mysterious girl with supernatural powers. She is immortal, has psychokinetic abilities, and can manipulate memory.
You would expect this horror movie is about her, but it's not. She is merely a witness of human lives, and we see the horror that lies within human beings through her perspective.
The movie is about 2 sisters born in a cursed family, where the women of this family are born more beautiful than anyone else, but slowly turns into a hideous monster at around age of 29.
Kimura Yoshino, who played 2 characters, was simply stunning. I've always thought she was a great actress, but she even surpassed my expectations in this one. She was actually very beautiful, in contrast of her usual dull roles. Nakagoshi Noriko was also really nice in this film. In fact, I can't even imagine these two characters played by any other actresses.
I don't want to spoil, so I recommend you to see the rest for yourself. It is a truly unique mystery horror film.
