Intriguing and Unintelligible Mess
17 June 2011 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Dr. Hattori and her husband watch footage of brain surgery experiments with Manchurian, Russian and Japanese guinea pigs that had been found in the basement of a wrecked hospital. Out of the blue, there is a white light and when they look back, they see they children Ota Miyuki and Kaori staring at the light.

Years later, Miyuki (Yuri Nakamura) vanishes from the Tama Medical University Hospital and her sister Kaori (Mina Fujii), Miyuki's boyfriend Motojima and detective Hirasawa are seeking her. However, Miyuki and the teenagers Kazochi, Takumi, Hattori and Rieko have been submitted to a nightmarish experiment by Dr. Hattori and her team with tragic results.

"Kyôfu" is an intriguing film, with a mad scientist that submits her daughters and other teenagers to creepy experiments that recalled me the Dharma Projet from "Lost". Unfortunately the screenplay is a complete mess and despite the good acting, cinematography, make-up and effects, the film is unintelligible. My vote is three.

Title (Brazil): "Herança Amaldiçoada" ("Cursed Heritage")
