35 years ago, a random act of violence was committed at a tourist hotel. A college professor, possessed by madness, went on a killing spree, slaughtering 11 hotel guests and employees. While recording his acts of violence on an 8mm camcorder, he slashed one victim after another, as they ran for their lives...35 years later a director called Matsumura wants to turn this crime story into a movie. Titled "Memory", he casts a young of his project. But as their shoot date closes in, Nagisa begins to see creepy dreams and hallucinations. Isn't the incident from the past yet over?

I personally loved this movie (a lot even compared to Dark Water and Ringu), it is not your usual ghost story with jump scares, blood and gore stuff. As you have already read the synopsis, you can already feel that it may have a horror (kind of thrill and suspense added). There is not enough to this , I won't spoil this one. It takes a huge shift to a genre which leaves you shocked in a psychological way. Reincarnation as the title says - I must appreciate the story and the director who interpreted the concept in a unique way. Though visually it won't be appealing and too old-school , but you can't stop raving about the original idea used rather than same old chappy endings.

Watch it for story, suspense and acting. It is not a hyped movie - but a simple plain storytelling doing wonders.

I would have rated it 7 or 8 but since I liked the original idea I rate it 9.5 (plus 0.5 than Ringu).

From beginning to end, this movie is great. The  opening scenes in which Nagisa Sugiura, played by Yuka, are grabbed by a  pair of gray hands through a shelf of books and a bunch of hands come  out to try to grab her is also excellent. The whole movie  is a bit like "The Awakening" where they realize that they are the  person who should be killed and take it out of their memory. The film, however, does a much better job of maintaining suspense and making the viewer the advantage. In technical terms it has its defects but the story in a certain way hides them.
