Hitori kakurenbo (2008)
30 August 2016 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

Well not quite what I expected…

It is an average movie, with average acting and an average plot. The movie could have potential but got pretty boring fast. The story promised a lot but the plot didn't have an edge at all. It could have given a lot if more afford was given to it. The dialogues where boring and meaningless and you couldn't identify with the characters and the story.

It had no atmosphere what so ever and that affected the entire movie… Back to the movie now, it is a compilation of three stories about a game. A game which you play when you are alone at home and you play it with a ghost. So you go hide and the ghost comes out to seek you… Promises lots of scares and gives nothing. It is a reap off other movies of its kind like Ringu etc but not as good.

Petty I expected much much more. Still I will take a look on the other ones also to see if they turn out better. The story has a potential for a good scare … I hope I am right.
