Weird, even by Japanese standards
1 April 2008 | by JoeB131See all my reviews

I'm not sure what the heck I just watched. It seems to be a series of non-sequiter gags based on UFO abductions or maybe a parody on the X-Files. I guess it is a sequel to some other movie.

The plot is that a woman named Satomi has a daughter who is abducted, but maybe she wasn't abducted at all. Or her mother might be an alien. Or she gets reincarnated as a spider. Or something, I was totally confused by the end of it.

I'm really thinking that there is some cultural thing here that I might be missing, but I've watched other Japanese films, which while not nearly as good as American films, do seem to contain some internal plot logic.

I'm not sure if this is supposed to be a comedy, a horror movie, or a sci-fi movie, or just the brain drippings of a deranged Japanese director.
