Over-the-Top and Fun
2 June 2011 | by ebossertSee all my reviews

I've been avoiding this one for a while after I read some not-so-positive reviews. I looked it up again recently and noticed that not only was it directed by Shusuke Kaneko (a very entertaining filmmaker) but it was also based on a book written by Kazuo Umezu, which is always an advantage because a handful of imaginative and fun movies have been recently made from this man's works (see "Tamami: The Baby's Curse" and "Orochi" ASAP!). I decided to give it a shot, and I'm glad I did.

After her psychic brother falls into a coma, a girl attempts to use his clues to catch a serial killer. One bizarre aspect is that the antagonist (Tomorowo Taguchi in an over-the-top performance) murders hot schoolgirls and then draws their deaths in a picture book for his 7-year-old daughter to read! This is one of those fun horror films that's not to be taken too seriously. The death scenes are nicely bloody and there's a healthy dose of absurdities and cheesiness (be prepared to chuckle a lot). The ending of this movie is so ridiculous that it needs to be seen to be believed. Oh, and the use of little kids in bloody terror sequences is much appreciated by this horror fan.
