Phillip Andre Botello,
Koji Shiraishi is interested in strange indiscriminate murder at a sightseeing resort. He goes behind the camera to investigate the circumstances surrounding strange occurrences and interview the survivors.
This is yet another "found footage" type movie. This one fails worse than usual however. It is about a film crew looking to make a DVD about haunted areas in the province of Chichibu. While investigating the story of will'o'wisps that appear after suicides jump from a suspension bridge, they inadvertently get involved in the dangerous legend.
The main problem the story has is that it is too slow paced and dull. It seems as if there are hours of random conversation that lead nowhere. Hours of footage of walking through the woods, most of it in grainy, shades of gray. The footage looks cheaply made whether on purpose or not. It isn't interesting enough to keep you listening to the lame dialog. When action finally happens it is mostly people running and screaming from something neither seen nor heard.
Hopefully movie makers will soon figure out that "found footage" has already been done to death and will get back to making actual movies again soon.
