"Look out for yourself"
12 January 2017 | by lost-in-limboSee all my reviews

There are many Agatha Christie's "10 little Indians" variants about, but I always find this concept entertaining despite its basic mechanics of murder and mystery. And this Japanese production is just the same. It plays out like "10 Little Indians" meets "Big Brother" and is handled by a competent director in the name of Hideo Nakata. Well known for for the influential horror "Ringu" (1998).

Ten people have thought they got a lucrative job, but actually find themselves locked up for seven days and forced to play a experimental murder game in what they call the paranoia house.

The outline is basic, but it's how the innovative screenplay plays about our characters and puts them in difficult situations. Where danger and suspicions fuel the fire. The mystery is engaging, psychology interplay tingles and there's nothing black and white here with these unstable characters. Even if there are some questionable inclusions and elaborate plotting. Sure there are daft moments, but Nakata's direction is sure-footed and suspense well-timed. Simple, it's entertaining and with that in mind its rather ironic in what I'm typing since it's taking a shot at society's obsession of turning violence into profitable entertainment. The music is subtle, but effective and the sombre underground(?) location is sterile in appearance and taut in atmosphere. It's slickly shot with Nakata's clinical approach working in its favour. The performances are rock-solid by the likes of Tatsuya Fujiwara, Kin'ya Kitaôji, Haruka Ayase and Satomi Ishihara.
