Full-throttle splatter-ific Japanese cyberpunk science fiction/horror at its most aggressive, this mind-blower about alien parasites that turn their human hosts into slave "Necroborgs" will leave you dizzy and drained - in a good way.
Aimi and her father move into an old, apartment building and learn quickly that things are not normal here. The landlord warns Aimi and her father of the curfew. First, all residents must cross the rope in front of the property by midnight. Second, no one can move out until a new tenant arrives. Those brave enough to break the rules are unmercifully killed by a mysterious force. Aimi begins to see visions of a girl that doesn't exist. She learns that a girl named Ai lived here 30 years ago before she vanished one day on her way home from school. Aimi is driven to find out more about her. She learns that Ai wasn't abducted, but in fact came back to the building the day she disappeared. Can Aimi learn the horrible truth of what happened to Ai? And what is the dark, disturbing secret that the two girls share?Written by
first of all i would like to say this is the first film I've seen since REC that had me wishing i was'nt watching alone in the dark. just finished this and wow! very well done, i was glued to the screen. typical kind of set up girl and father move because the mother has just passed away, but apart from that i found everything to be quite original. The apartment block is quite creepy as are the other residents. There are no real special effects or blood but i think thats a good thing because the script is excellent and the atmosphere and surrounding's are so dark and depressing it's not needed, and the ending wow, wow, and wow! totally unexpected. overall not quite as good as ringu but not far off i would recommend to anyone who likes Japanese horror and people who don't. p.s first comment and just getting used to new computer so sorry about spelling and grammar.
