When a girl is discovered dead at a dock, the local coroner, Yamazaki, soon realizes that her hair is still growing at an incredible rate. Yamazaki decides to take the body home with him and begins selling the girl's hair to local hair salons as hair extensions ('exte'). However, it soon becomes apparent that the hair has a life of its own, with deadly consequences.Written by
A man with a hair fetish has been harvesting the locks of the recently deceased for his collection of award winning hair extensions. But things start to get weird when he takes the hair from the body of a woman that seems to be haunted...it just continues to grow...and grow...and grow...
So he begins lop off segments and give them to local hair salons as samples.
He's not in it for the money...he just wants to see a world full of people with beautiful hair.
However, something isn't right with this hair.
Those who dawn it, become consumed by it...quite literally...as hair begins growing from every pore...orifice...internal organ...etc...until they're dead.
And only someone who can truly understand the suffering that the hair woman went through- prior to her death- can break the curse.
This film is some kind of weird. The special effects (a combination of traditional and cgi) have their moments. It is both humorous and disturbing. And the ending is patently ridiculous...but at least it's patently ridiculous fun.
6 out of 10.
