Worth a watch, ending can be interpreted a few ways it seems but overall good story and some good spooks

3.5/5 - Really well-made movie with fantastic acting (wouldn't expect any less from Takashi Miike). The ending is genuinely unsettling (though not quite as disturbing as Audition), and I think it explores some really important themes. There were only a few moments of goofy early-2000s CGI. On purely technical grounds, this film probably deserves a full 4 skulls. But I was kind of annoyed by how similar this movie is to Ring (1998). It has a very similar race-against-the-clock techno-horror concept, and it even follows some of the same plot points (including a seismic twist in the middle). Regardless, if you like Ring, you'll like this one.

Obviously much better than the American remake, and a great movie. There were a few points where I thought it was anticlimatic, but it picked back up at the end and I heavily enjoyed it.
