    "This japanese film is an adaptation of a Manga which explains some of the plot eccentricities and surreal feeling of the piece. The story is well told, but everything just seems a little bit larger than life and contrived. However the acting is good and the subtitles are well translated into English"

    "Asian horror fanatic here-and supernatural thriller fan. The early 2000's were good years for this type of horror classic, with ghosts, psychics, and complicated plots. Watch it and tell me what you think."
