Tagline: From The Creators of Japan's Acclaimed RINGU, Inspiration for the hit phenomenon THE RING

Plot: Yoshimi is fighting to gain the legal custody of her five-year-old daughter while the two live in a dark and musty apartment building. Yoshimi is already insecure and uncertain about her future with her daughter, and now she is haunted by a lifelike, murky water dripping through the ceilings and walls, and by the almost taunting appearances of a small red bag. Disturbed by the events that are plaguing her building, Yoshimi wants only to get on with her life. But something much darker is waiting for her, and her simple wish may not be answered.

From Hideo Nakata, director of 'Ring', comes this brooding and unsettling masterpiece of horror cinema!

In the midst of a custody battle, Yoshimi and her beloved 6 year old daughter move in a creepy apartment. Once there, the discovery of a schoolbag left behind by a mysterious young girl, along with the appearance of damp patches on the ceiling and walls begins to haunt them as rumours circulate of a little girl who disappeared from the apartment

external linkGood Japanese film, but I expected more. Has some creepy moments, but nothing that the director hasn't already shown us before in the Ring trilogy. Worth a look if you're a fan of Hideo Nakata. 7/10

external linkAll in all, this is one of the best Japanese horror films, and one of the best horror films of 2002. I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoyed The Ring or The Ring 2. 4.5/5
