Go seek a better movie.

"I found you."

Hide and Go Kill is a pretty boring, low-budget Ringu/Ring knock-off. It's a collection of stories about a fairly complicated game that Japanese high school kids start playing called Hide and Seek Along, which leads to teenagers being haunted, possessed, killing themselves, and other supernatural shenanigans. 

When I said it was boring, I really meant it. Most of the film is comprises of scenes of people repeatedly asking each other if they've ever heard of Hide and Seek Alone, asking if they want to play Hide and Seek Alone, or giving instructions on how to play Hide and Seek Alone. It's about as exciting as reading the rules of chess. Occasionally interrupt that cycle of tedium with a somehow even more boring sequence of a teenager playing the game, and you've got your movie. 

Undoubtedly, the best thing by far about Hide and Go Kill is how cute one of the main actresses (Saki Yamaguchi) is, but it would be much quicker, easier, and probably more fun to just look up pictures or videos of her on your search engine of choice. There are some very worthy J-horror flicks to be found, but this isn't one of them. Not scary, not interesting, not worth your time. I have to admit that I feel strangely compelled to see the sequel, though. After all, it can't be any worse and there might be another cute girl or two.
