Cast & Credits
Personally I enjoyed the first half far more - the mystery of all the supernatural events, the small details in the background that you need to pay attention to. The directing truly made me focus on what was happening on screen, since I did not want to miss any one of the bizarre moments - all thanks to some small detailed images.
And then the story started to get explained and for me it lost a bit of its charm. The scares shifted from unexplained supernatural to human’s evil deeds - it made me more uncomfortable than scared. There is value in exploring such themes, but it was not something I was looking for in this specific title.
The acting was decent. Nothing too outstanding, but good enough not to get distracting. Koki did a good job with the duality of her performance.
Overall, kept my interest till the end, even if the second half was slightly disappointing.
The past and present connection is everything to me.I like this movie because it had that aspect of connecting the past and present as well as the fact that they actually made contact with it.
The story is interesting. I love the back story and how they're thrown into that story themselves.
Personally, I watched this during midnight so it hits different than usual (I had someone with me though. for assurance ). I re-watched it during the day and thought that it wasn't that scary.
For those who are first time watchers and want to feel scared, watch this alone during late night. Having someone with you decreases the thrill and fear meter. LOL.
