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! (An Ever-Expanding List) (99 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."

" 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."

"17.5. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Nähdäppä tämä ensikertaa ja ilman ennakkotietoa. Ei sillä, 15 vuoden takaisesta katselusta ei loppua kummemmin mitään tarkkaa mielessä ollut, joten käytännössä koko muu elokuva näyttäytyi aika tuoreena. Tai ainakin hahmonkehitys, hienovaraiset vihjeet tulevasta ja puhdas genre-elokuville vittuilu tuntuivat vähemmän tutuilta. Oikeastaan uusintakatselu näillä tunteilla voisi olla hyvinkin mielenkiintoinen. Häiriintynyt, mutta jotenkin myös liik"

" 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"
