We screened this short at the Horrible Imaginings Film Festival in San Diego. We also had the immense pleasure of speaking with the filmmaker, Pablo Absento, who flew all the way form Japan to be in attendance.
Japanese influenced horror about a ghost/demon hunting a man who has just received bad news. His day is getting worse! Good effects help to raise the tension combined with excellent cinematography, make this film a great experience. There is clearly more to this story, which we would love to see filmed and according to the filmmaker, it appears that there is another film in the works. What helps this film is the borrowing of classic Japanese horror element, but wrapping it up in a modern "western" way of storytelling.
Sometimes in horror, especially of the supernatural variety, it is what you don't see more than what you do see and this film is no exception to that rule. The creep factor really is in the stuff you don't get to directly witness.
It is definitely worth watching. We are definitely going to be on the lookout for more.
