Storyline

Nami has been creating artwork for a new video game based on images she's been seeing in her dreams. With one of the game producers, she travels out to an abandoned house that seems to match her visions. As they explore the old mansion, Nami begins to have more visions of a forgotten childhood, until at last she comes across a photo of twin infants, labelled "Nami" and "Naomi". As Nami and the producer go from room to room, an unseen person seems to be watching them from a hidden room. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Great Cinematography
25 September 2003 | by See all my reviews

If you enjoy Japanese horror than this film is highly reccomended. The plot isn't really the hi-lite here, it is the camera work and the atmosphere that is created. With this atmosphere, the story really didn't need to be to strong because the viewer is captivated by its visuals.

This film was shot on DV, I bought this movie thinking it was going to be another low-budget horror film, but boy was I wrong. If there is another movie that looks as good as this and was shot on DV, can someone please post a note in the message board.

GREAT MOVIE!!!!!!!! A DEFINATE MUST SEE!!!!!!!!!
