I watched this back in college and forgot all about how it was. Awesome
When I began choosing out movies for my Slasher Month bunge, I didn't know this film existed, but was interested because it was an anime slasher psychological thriller... I'm glad I let my curiosity add it to the list!
5 skulls for a reason, flawless. How can animation be this unnerving?
An incredible work.
