Even though it has been ages since I have seen this flick, I will probably never forget this movie. Indeed, I have seen more than 5000 movies in my life so far and it is easily the most horrible one. If I recall it correctly, I actually saw this flick back then when I was living in England in the movie theater when it was released at the time.

This movie started my hunger for Asian horror, not only was it disturbing, but it allowed me to watch something that was totally different from the Hollywood movies. I highly recommend this movie, but its not for the faint of heart.

30 From 99: My Favorite Films From 1999 (30 movies items)

" Y'know how when you try to wake up your foot after it's fallen asleep & it then feels like there are a hundred thin needles piercing thru the flesh? Raise the level of that feeling from uncomfortable to horrific, add a little razor-wire & an angelic smile, & there you go. You've got this movie. Rarely does the face of horror look so beautiful and hurt so torturously bad at the same time."
