Idol Horror movie
11 July 2009 | by (Tokyo / Toronto) – See all my reviews

This film has two dimensions, as an idol movie and a horror movie. Typically these two do not mix, but it did for me in this case.

Teketeke is an urban legend of a woman with no lower body who chops anyone who turns around into half.

Ooshima Yuuko, the girl who played the leading role is in AKB48, a ridiculously large (48 members) idol band, but her acting was very good, just like Maeda Atsuko in "How to Become Myself", a fellow AKB48 member. Of course, she's very cute, but what I really liked about her was her unique voice. Although AKB48 is an extremely stupid band that releases really horrible songs in my opinion, I am looking forward to more movies starring its members.

"Teketeke" is a typical Japanese horror movie. It's scary, but not so much that I can't sleep at night. Girls get chopped into half, but not overly gory and gross. Just perfect for me in every way. All the victims being really beautiful women and cute girls is an added bonus. The people who made this movie must have been pervs, but I must also be a perv too for liking it.

The balance of horror (scary parts) and everyday life (introduction, mourning, researching on the monster etc) was perfect. Overall great direction and production that maintains the suspense throughout the film.

This movie may not stand out among hundreds of other Japanese horror movies, but it's my absolute favorite.
