Great use of audio to send chills. Worth the watch.
I was really excited to finally see this one and I was... a little disappointed. The final 45 minutes of the film are worth watching but it feels like it takes FOREVER to get there. Also the “double twist” didn’t really work for me. It seemed obvious.
Yet another movie in subtitles, this is getting really tiresome.....
Story is so unoriginal... but it's Miike.
