Okay, I’ll be the first to admit, it took me a minute to get into this movie, and even longer to calm down. Or at least keep the popcorn I was eating down! It’s sick, twisted, gory, in Japanese, but with subtitles. Yes, you’ll need to read a movie, but trust it’s good! This is one where you really want the villain to win!
This disturbing Japanese thriller follows Aoyama (Ryo Ishibashi), a widower who decides to start dating again. Aided by a film-producer friend (Jun Kunimura), Aoyama uses auditions for a fake production to function as a dating service. When Aoyama becomes intrigued by the withdrawn, gorgeous Asami (Eihi Shiina), they begin a relationship. However, he begins to realize that Asami isn’t as reserved as she appears to be, leading to gradually increased tension and a harrowing climax.
Check out the trailer and then the movie. If you can stomach slasher flicks, you can handle this one!
