● OK, the title sounded pretty amazing which I thought should give me a bang of emotion. but after completing it am actually confused about what the director and writers wanted to convey with the movie. demons covered in scars should I be sad for them or NOT?

● Bullying is a sensitive issue but this movie was more like a revenge plot by a victimized student while serving NO pity for the main characters. the film even opens up with this bangin' disco number cut with slow-mo's of Shino getting bullied while schoolgirls are dancing in the hallway & kicking shoes around. The movie plays out more like a horror thriller than a high school drama as the bullying intensifies.
● The movie is based on manga, the storyline seemed straightforward, but then in another aspect, it didn’t make sense, which felt like a cluttered and semi-confusing plot with many weird dialogues, maybe the subs didn’t work out for me. And then it was bad at a point that showed PTSD in an eerie way as if it was the whole cause of bullying. Everyone seemed heartless, so am in no mood for pity.

● A killer execution by the leads, the performance is marvelous, showing their cruel and gruesome side. Music is not wow but it is fine. Rewatch is no for me as I can't really really handle this movie as the bullying seems endless.

● If you want to watch a bullying movie, it is a good movie, but the ending is not worthwhile for the record. It is like do you now feel when you walked into my shoes.

bullying invents broken people, the victims become the victimizers, those who stand by and do nothing are as bad as the bullies themselves. In this movie whole school is a jerk even though they didn’t participate they are not spared.
