Such a hauntingly beautiful movie, cinematography-wise and story-wise. It scared the crap out of me and made me cry like a baby.
Not even close to as scary as Ju-On or Ringu.... was hoping this movie was gonna be traumatizing cuz I love Hideo Nakata. Big meh from me. Just as long and dramatic as the American version with Jennifer Connelly and no spook!
One of the must see Asian horror movies along with Ju-On and Ringu
It was ok. I like the remake better.
