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.

Ultimate Horror Films (68 movies items)

" There is a lot of hype surrounding Audition. It is often cited as being one of the most disturbing films in existence. I strongly disagree with this position and struggle to understand why it has this reputation. Yes, it has some intense scenes of violence, but there are far more extreme horror films out there. That being said, I think it's a good solid Horror film, which is why it has a place on this list."

When I was 30... movie diary (Finished) (181 movies items)

"April 17, 2014 Weird, but in some way interesting. At times I was bored, sometimes I had shiver on my skin, especially when Asami sang with string in hand (shocking scene), but overall it seems to me that this was a pretty good movie about revenge. Considering that this film is a production of Asian, I expected something even more bloody."

My movie year 2014 (705 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"
