Good attempt, but doesn't touch the brilliance of Noroi
5 October 2011 | by Chaosmetal69See all my reviews

Shirome is about a group of girls that are in a pop group and their manager decides for more publicity that they should film them going to a school that supposedly has evil spirits and has killed numerous people who have visited there.

The documentary side of this is great however I was honestly a bit let down by some of the scares, however it does have a lot of tense moments where you're wondering what will happen next. No issues with the acting either it was all great as well.

Those coming to this title after witnessing the magnificence of Noroi however will be strongly disappointed like I was. I can't really recommend this to anyone for that reason because the scare scenes are honestly kind of weak and the film stinks of low budget which isn't a bad thing but not a good thing in the case of this film.

This is only worth watching if you're a hardcore hand-camera horror type person or staged documentary types. To the average horror movie watcher you will probably hate this movie. I won't watch it again but i'll recommend it to others who love the genre cause maybe they will find something they like in it.
