The most horrible movie ever

Even though it has been ages since I have seen this flick, I will probably never forget it. Indeed, I have seen more than 5000 movies in my life so far and it is easily the most horrible one I have ever seen. 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. To be honest, I wonder how I actually ended ... read more

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.

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.

A middle aged widower is urged by his teenage son and film producer friend to start dating again. They devise a plan to hold a phony film audition to meet new women. The widower falls for a beautiful ballerina with a suspicious past and their courtship veers from polite romance to psycho-nightmare!

31 Days of Horror (Halloween) 2019 (31 movies items)

" Date: 10/8/2019 Viewed: Blu-Ray (Arrow Video) Re-watch Note: This movie never gets old when I always revisit it. I like that the movie is a slow burn and does a great job on building up the suspense. I love the layers of subtext and a study on dangerous love that this movie has. All the characters in this movie are likable and memorable in my opinion. Not to mention, some scenes in this movie are still nasty as hell even after 20 years later. This movie is not for everyone, but I do recommen"

"Having experienced "Audition" upon its American release, I can truly say now what it must have been like for people when they first saw Hitchcock's "Psycho". See innocent desire for company turn into deranged madness and never be the same again. "

Slant’s 100 Greatest Horror Films – 2018 Edition (100 movies items)

"For all its reputation as a stomach-churning endurance test awaiting eager new horror fans, it’s worth reminding audiences that Takashi Miike’s Audition is a masterpiece because the filmmaker brilliantly plumbs the poignant human desperation that often fuels both the romantic comedy and the horror film. Aoyama’s (Ryo Ishibashi) ridiculous self-absorbed quest to find a mate isn’t merely parodied as a symptom of social objectification, as it might have been in an Eli Roth production. You f"
