Storyline

Schoolgirls on the verge of adulthood know that boys can be feckless and girls treacherous. Three friends gather around a Ouija board to call forth the spirit of Kokkuri. Masami has a boyfriend, Akira; Hiroko, who is nervous about the séance, wonders if she should take the plunge into sex; Mio is haunted by her mother's suicide. She also has a secret life as the voice of a midnight talk show host, the sexually-charged Midori. Mio must explore her past and her new feelings. Can she hold off the power and predictions of Kokkuri to enter adulthood, or will the destructive and romantic side of teen spirit be too powerful? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

This movie is NOT Dark Water 2!!!
20 February 2003 | by mandiappleSee all my reviews

... despite what it says on the cover of my copy. Quite apart from anything else, Dark Water (Honogurai mizu no soko kara) was made in 2002, and Kokkuri was made in 1997. However, that said, there *are* definite similiarities in the cinematography, although Dark Water is an infinitely superior movie in almost every way.

I found this film to be pretty atmosphere-free, with dull acting and a half-baffling, half-teen-screamer plot, not even remotely scary. You don't even get to see very much in the way of supernatural manifestations: a few glimpses of a frankly ordinary kid in a red dress is about all. The supposedly climactic final scenes are limp and half-hearted, although the locations are quite nice. I'd save your money for the real sequel if I were you.
