A high school boy and girl: Itsuki Kamiyama and Yoru Morino are "GOTH," who have an obsessive interest in the dark side of humankind. One day, Yoru picks up a note in a cafe that serves as the meeting ground for geeks. Included on the note are all the details about the bizarre murder cases that have occurred in many places recently. Intrigued by the cases, she asks Itsuki to go to one of a homicide scene, where they go in search of an unfound dead body.
Cast & Credits
This isn't really a horror movie or anything. You're able to see how two high schoolers who never spoken before discover they share the same interest. Death.
Story 10- The main characters unravels the mystery of a murder case in thier neighbourhood not to solve the case and catch the murderer, but to see the corpse themselves.
Acting 10- I thought the acting was brillient as I felt I could connect with the obession the characters have.
Music 9- The music genre fits wonderfully as it beats up the tension.
Rewatch 9- Again I enjoyed the movie, may have something to do with loving the manga so much.
Some people may not agree with me and I admit some parts were a little slow but it's definitely worth the watch. There isn't much blood, 'scary' disturbing scenes for a murder/crime movie, however overall I loved the movie.
I liked how two high school students discovers each of them have an obsessive interest in corpse/dead bodies. Soon after, they take on a homicide case where they can reach their full potential in order to see a corpse themselves.
Since viewing this drama, I realize through J-Rock, EmoRock, and PunkRock music and the subculture within Japan not a lot of this subculture is being portrayed within dramas. It's great to see a variety of characters where high school romance and cutesy isn't as heavily portrayed within the drama. From the beginning, it's confusing to tell what's going on, however as the story progresses, you start understanding the characters, the settings, the main story, the distance between the character and the family, and the socialization between the popular and unpopular high schoolers.
I fully enjoyed this type of drama as I'll never see this if I did not take on a psychological/thriller challenge. The drama itself may be disturbing, more artistic, not as bloody, and eye-opening towards high school life than any other drama. It's one that should not be overlooked.
Dark, Suspense, Psychological, Crime, Artistic, and Obsessive are the key words in this drama. If you like any of these themes above, the movie should be on your 'PTW' list.
