so so good
This is the sort of scary movie I like the best. It’s a slow burn and it makes you really analyze it while watching. What makes it scary isn’t monsters, murders or jump scares, but the fact that it gets in your head.
I wish there were more of Shiraishi's "documentary" styled films more easily available - he does something pretty singular with the genre..
Slow burn found footage full of the creepies and a mega-rich story, getting old but still gold
