eerie shots of the Japanese countryside
11 January 2007 | by christopher-underwoodSee all my reviews

Not at all bad! There is always a bit of a problem with the odd scarecrow horrors that there have been and that is basically it's hard to get too scared over a man of straw. This is creepy though and with convincing performances, effective music and beautiful but often eerie shots of the Japanese countryside, this at times reminds one of Wicker Man. Kaoru is searching for her brother and ends up in some sort of village of the damned made out of straw. Not entirely original and not too many heart stopping moments but it does have it's own momentum and plenty of innovative elements to keep one more than interested throughout. Most likable.
