As the sole survivor of a horrendous and rather mysterious accident, Mitsuko, a typical Japanese teenager, can safely say that her day has got off to a bad start. It seems that an unstoppable force of nature, a doomed field trip, and a strange case of amnesia can easily coexist in a bizarre parallel universe, where a desperate Mitsuko is always on the run from something inexplicable, intangible, and utterly deadly. However, that's not all. Amid piles of fresh dead bodies, mounds of scorching bullet shells, and rivulets of fragrant young blood, frail Mitsuko must fight to stay alive, before her already messed up day becomes even stranger. But, the question still remains. Who is the enemy?Written by

This is probably not what any of us expected when reading the title
At first, I thought this was going to be another movie that I may laugh at because it just starts off so bad (and the reviews of the movie aren't great either) and after seeing the ridiculous scene at the beginning I almost wanted to stop watching
because I have already seen way too many of these movies...
However, that this movie then takes a completely different turn and becomes a drama, which at least can be taken a little bit serious, I could hardly imagine.
There are still things I really did not like about the movie. For example the way people died; it was just ridiculous and taking that serious was almost impossible. Then there are parts in which people are barely clothed for no reason and strangely enough there is a permanent attempt to capture as much of the girls' panties as possible which again, fulfilled no reason.
Putting these things aside, I still liked how the story turned out and even though some things were a bit too predictable, I still got surpised sometimes.
If I imagine this movie with less of this trashy splatter attempt, I would surely recommend this to anyone.
