A young girl learns of the urban legend of Teke Teke after her friend is killed in a gruesome way. The legend tells of a female ghost that has no legs. When she visits the spot where her friend died she comes into contact with it .
Koji Shiraishi is interested in strange indiscriminate murder at a sightseeing resort. He goes behind the camera to investigate the circumstances surrounding strange occurrences and interview the survivors.
This is the second installment of Teketeke. It continues with the lore of ghost/creature called Teketeke (Because it makes the sound that in Japanese sense sound's like teke teke when it crawls) and more victims that falls under it's nefarious slashing power.
Murder is occurring with girls who having red object as their belongings. The killer's calling card is its victim's body is always sliced in half at the waist. Rumor goes around amongst the high school girls that murder is done by Teketeke.
Reiko Kashima is thought to be the girl who turned into Teketeke. She was raped while she was still a virgin shortly after World War 2. Detective who handled the case thinks three men all having the sir name Numazaki committed the crime. But Reiko told the police that she was raped by an American soldier. But it was unlikely that American occupational force came to that area. Soon after the three men dies in a suspicious way. Reiko's grudge still seem to be roaming the streets as Teketeke.
Now Teketeke seems to be closing in on Natsuki (Sayuri Iwata) and her classmates.
Sayuri Iwata has good acting ability that conveys the realism of incident that happens in Japanese society. Portrayal of teenage girls living in Japan is spot on. Their gullible innocence in face of danger raises the fear factor in this movie.
Teketeke 1 was good, but this one is perhaps a tad better because the characters had more facets to their personality. This is one scary movie, and recommended for viewing if you're an Asian horror movie fan.
