wow, just wow...
24 February 2006 | by TrulyDisturbedSee all my reviews

I went into this film expecting something decent. What came out was amazing. If you are a fan on Japanese cinema this film should be on your must see list.

The film is not your standard revenge film involving revenge on those who hurt the victim but revenge on anyone. The action is fairly quick to get going and gets more and more disturbing as it goes along.

Definitely more enjoyable over a few beers since you will get to the point about not caring about the characters that die that much quicker since there is one characters death that does seem a little undeserved, but hey, its a Japanese horror flick! GO WATCH THIS MOVIE!!!.......NOW!!!
