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.

My Horror Top 10 (10 movies items)

"A visceral and harrowing piece that eviscerates the social norms between men and women. Audition displays a deft balance between subtle thematics and unnerving, unflinching grisliness. "

Terror Blurbs! Pt. 1 (An Ever-Expanding List) (100 movies items)

"When I watched this movie I felt like I understood exactly what audiences watching Psycho in 1960 must have felt like. Unflinching, unsettling, and engrossing, Audition is a film that viscerally and psychologically dissects the dynamics between men and women."

300 & 99 From The 1st Decade Of The New Millennium (399 movies items)

" Y'know how when you try to wake up your foot after it's fallen asleep and 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 and an angelic smile, and 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. "

"13.4. Toinen katselukerta. Kerronta on terävää kuin vaijerisaha. Temporaaliset tasot, unen ja todellisuuden rajapinnat, kaikki narut pysyvät Miiken elokuvassa niin puhtaasti ja tyylikkäästi kasassa. Muistikuvia merkittävästi parempi elokuva."
