actually quite good
7 October 2005 | by hxc0148See all my reviews

i enjoyed this film. A lot of people give this movie a lot of flack due to the fact it can get kind of pretentious at moments and about the first 75% of the film moves VERY slowly. The end in my opinion was very gratifying, the gore was well done....the whole thing is shot well, yes it is quite hoke....but everyone downing this movie fails to realize that it's a STUDENT FILM made on absolutely no budget whatsoever. The term student film gets overused quite often, no, kumakiri made this film as his thesis in film school, he actually was in an extra year and a half trying to scrounge the money to finish. So, it's nothing earth shattering...but it is quite impressive considering the context, situation, and budget, and it is quite brutal in the end. If you are a fan of underground/indie cinema chances are you'll at the least enjoy this little nasty.
