i watched all 3 of them and the action gradually builds up in the first, (very well done, outstanding even,no negative comments there regarding Chakushin Ari 1) in the second we're treated to a mix of horror-thriller fest, also very well done - i cant understand why Chakushin Ari 2 is so underrated :(- where the story stimulates the adrenalin even more, and now we come to the third one. i cant find anything negative about it, it has all the ingredients a horror-thriller flick needs in order to keep the viewer glued to the screen. nothing overly done as far as the acting goes, very well chosen sets, excellent script, excellent score and in this horror-thriller ride we're even treated to a bit of drama-romance, (keyko and that other guy i forgot his name:P) blended in perfectly with the on-going story. like i said it's the best of the trilogy and it's definitely worth at least a watch if not more. this is not your average slash-and-dash-Friday-night-video. it is a movie very well made, it is clearly visible the crew used their brains wisely when they set out on making it (as for the entire trilogy as well). and on top of all this we get a nice blend of final destination (also a great one, but just the first part for the sake of the originality of the story) touch added in. this is not a commercial film where all that counts is making money, no, this is (and of course money is also a part of the deal)a great treat to 100 % horror-thriller fest and it takes brains and devotion to a project to make it stand out from other "competitors" in the genre. (i'm talking about the entire trilogy, especially the final part) watch it people, you'll be in for the ride of your life. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !
