Pretty good. A lot of these Japanese horror films from this time frame make the feels on the bus go round and round. Scare factor is there but it's more just an unsettling type of film. Good though.
Touching story and ending though I definitely thought the explanation of the ghost would be more involved than it ended up being. I enjoy a slow burn and this is definitely a good ghost story overall for me.
Good ghost story with a very haunting, moving conclusion. I def cried a little, tbh.
Enough Said with the skull
Haunting and heartbreaking. More of a psychological drama than a straight up horror film, but it still delivers some great scares. Amazing atmosphere throughout. If you don't like slow burns you will find it boring.
