This movie is sick!!!!Yet, in a good way

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.

The most horrible movie ever

I have seen more than 3500 movies in my life so far and this is easily the most horrible one. I won't describe what happened but it is just terrible. Compared to this, 'Saw' or 'Hostel' are like Disney movies. i must say that the beginning is rather slow and innocent but it makes the shocking ending even more effective. In my opinion, it is not only horrible but it has also a fascinating story and... read more

Ha! Ha! It makes me laugh just thinking about it. Very slow paced gentle comedy at the beginning. The jarring notes are well introduced. Introduction to Japanese women.

My movie year 2014 (210 movies items)

"27.2. (Kirjasto-DVD) Takashi Miiken uran huippuhetkiä. Tunnelma kiristyy kotoisasta perhearjesta ja deittailusta aika helvetillisen painostavaksi nopeasti sekä varmasti. Itse kidutusjakso ei ahdista graafisuudellaan vaan pikemminkin henkisellä, tuntemattomalla puolellaan. Outojen flashbackien keskellä katsojalle ei selviä, onko näyissä kyse huumaantumisesta, peitetyistä muistoista vaiko mistä. Onko nainen muuten vaan sekaisin, vaiko kostoretkellä uskoessaan tulleensa hyväksikäytet"

Over-rated films IMHO (8 movies items)

"I could hammer this film to death as to how bad it is...I must be the only person to prefer the first half of the film where its nicely set up and then its absurd horror time in the second half - I have NO problem with absurdity if its being played for laughs like in Human Centipede 2...even the torture at the end is lame I could go on but its not that good a film...surprisingly for a so called disturbing film its quite tame"

" A lonely Japanese widower whose son is planning to move out of the house soon expresses his sadness to a friend and fellow film producer, who becomes inspired to hold an audition for a non-existent film so that the widower can select a new potential bride from the resulting audition pool. The widower ultimately becomes enamored with and fascinated by one particular young woman...but first impressions can often be horribly wrong...."

"Y'know how when you try to wake up your foot after it's fallen asleep & it then feels there are like a hundred thin needles are piercing into your flesh? Well, 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 yet hurt so torturously bad at the same time. "
