bloody weird
20 November 2008 | by trashgangSee all my reviews

Just watched this flick and I was thinking, what did I see. I noticed on the net that this is still an OOP and people are searching to find this mysterious flick. It's a bit of supernatural combined with horror. But it is all filmed with weird effects and weird story lines. It all starts off pretty well by getting to know the characters. A supernatural mother gets a weird feeling by seeing the girlfriend of her son. But after a while we get knowing that they all are supernatural and some samurai is hunting the forest and their house. Sometimes it made me remind of the original Boogeyman. The effects I mean. Sure it is a low budget flick. The mother and the girlfriend are believable. That makes the movie watchable. I never understood why masturbating of the girlfriend was so important concerning the samurai. Couldn't get the plot of the movie neither. Anyway, I got my copy on DVD-R and I'm glad I've got one, a weird one to watch, bloody weird.
