I heard about this movie a long time ago and many times I questioned whether to purchase it or not, and I always seemed to pass it up, but finally gave in a few weeks ago and I'm glad I did, because this is a sweet movie. It has some freaky scenes and a great story.

This is now one of my favorite movies. It's original and has some excellent special effects. Better than I thought it would. Some of the stuff in this movie I've never seen in any other movie before. One of my favorite scenes is a part where a man spins his eyes around and around creating a vortex to prove a point to his family. The script to this movie is very innovative and original. I've never seen a movie based on vortex's before. Though, I do remember seeing a scene in Dark City that reminded me of a scene in this movie.

There's nothing really scary in this movie, but there are some chilling parts. It has some small humor now and then like most Japanese movies. The directing was very well done. I liked how the director would create a spiral with the computer that would follow the main characters in certain scenes of the movie. It was cool to look around for it while watching the movie; Never seen that done before either. The movie keeps you interested and entertained from start to finish. I would have given it a 10-rating, but decided to hold off on that and settle with a 9. It's still a great film.

One of my favorite Japanese horror films. Very original story. Has some freaky scenes and stuff that I've never seen before. Check this out.
