Film Description
Japanism Horror movie.
full VO. storytelling style. english subtitle.
3 mins 26 secs.

*custom music, sound effects, special effects*

this film based on a novel, real stories "Kaidan 100 story".
Kaidan is very famous collected short real stories in Japan.
there are 100 stories in a Kaidan. this is 1/100.
I reproduced the atmosphere of the Kaidan.

real story is end at the woman (ghost) gone scene.
because that is really real story.
but that something is missing. so i added original last scene.

I can not speak english well. my english is poor, sorry... i hope you like it :)

*attention*
"Near" ghost is not samara (sadako of "Ring").
black long hair and white long dress is traditional (typical?) Japanese woman ghost style.
Near is not using scene of "The Ring". that ghost is using original costume picture.


a postscript.
******* "Near" real drama version *******

I can't possibly say anything that hasn't been said before: this has to be the creepiest movie I ever saw! About halfway through I had to turn the lights on and open the door, because its impossible to watch in the dark, in a closed room, on your own. You feel like she's coming closer... closer... closer...

Yikes, that was just SO creepy. You should put a warning on the film not to watch it while alone at night. Great use of custom artwork and animation (as is usual with your films). I still have goosebumps!

I liked the voice of the woman who narrated this a lot, it was like a spooky bedtime story but one that is guaranteed to keep you awake rather than send you to sleep. Great special effects as usual.
The ending was especially frightening. How will I ever sleep tonight ;-)

I nice splice of J-Horror. I believe the term 'Yūrei' applies to this brand of ghost? One of the reasons I like the brand of horror is it's very much part of my own influences. The build up of tension and anticipation and the will they won't they and when you think they won't they will scenario. I can see the fear factor shine through. Proof again that you have mastered the art of genuine horror and it's difficult to comment where on TMO this could be topped.

Verrry creepy, i'll tell you the grudge scared the hell out of me at the cinema, so a reimaginging is always good!

The big scare was well worth it when it came and the repetitive pattern of events and atmospheric soundtrack built up the suspense very convincingly.

The english translation was a bit sloppy though, I didn't understand some of the early lines ("one night, awoke by person sign") - and she says "it was still midnight" after looking at her clock which clearly shows 5 to 2 (that one was VERY sloppy).

Still - if you're one of those people who feels the need to be scared witless, this film shouldn't disappoint! (as always, full screen and in the dark is the ONLY way to watch this kind of film)

In serious reviewer talk:
A terrifying J-Horror that proves we should fear things more if they get nearer... and nearer... and nearer......
In not so serious chat forum talk:
AGGHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!! That's freaky but I watched it with my sister so I had the bravery to watch to the end! That girl looks like on front cover of The Grudge!

Hello.
I also cant add anything that other didnt...
Great movie, it is really good directed, also voices ( one actually ) is awesome too. Subtitles arent "the best" but i have read your ***atention in your description of movie" and i can see that your english isnt very good, so subtitles cant be minus.

One of the best horror movies here.

As always, gripping and exciting story.

But, I was expecting more. After that build-up, I thought something really scary would happen. Perhaps i didn't get scared because I didn't watch it in a dark room.

whoo what a good horror movie. see my trailer of katuri (based on the ju-on series)

Posted on June 6, 2007

Ghost stories are always an attention grabber

The Good:
The story. Was it 'real' or a 'dream'? Nice effect.
The ending. I wasn't expecting that.
The voiceover. Sounded good.
The subtitles (even though some spelling/grammer errors) kept us up with what the narrator was saying.

The Bad:
I was expecting more.

Overall:
A good short story.
Nice Job.

A very good horror flick, despite the fact that I felt the ending was a bit of an anticlimax.
I feel that (and please don't take this the wrong way) the fact that your enlish was not fluent actually added to the effect that you were trying to create (and trust me, your english is way better than my japanese). Exceptional use of sound and atmosphere.
Fantastic.

Omg! this is one of the scaryest movie i ever have seen! first i thougt: huh, that not scary, i can`t see what it is! but then i realised what she said: the woman were getting closer! my heart stopped! it was so scary, so, so, so scary! and then when the face showed up my hair freezed to ice! a real horror masterpiece! if the grudge and the ring is like this, i will never see them!

HEY MAN, i'm back from a long absence. anyways, if u ever want, i could do english subtitles for u. i think that idea was good. but u should have expanded upon a few versions of the dream, instead of just having the person lurking in the corner in all of the "dreams".
great job using s&e though

Atmospheric and well acted, I thought that this was a not bad little short story, but being too short with no story as to who the girl is, why she's doing what she's doing etc... didn't make me too scared. I still enjoyed it, but with this one I didn't exactly feel the escalating fear. I wanted to be too afraid to look at the corner of my room again!
The directing was perfect as well as the special effects and the creepy atmosphere that worked.
The subtitles weren't very well translated, but they still worked alright.

It would be cooler if this was a full length movie with a story to add that fear, but you didn't scare me this time :D

This is probably the worst film I have seen on TMO. No joke. There are simply no positives about this piece. The story was nonexistent, the effects were lousy, and the constant narration of every detail was incredibly annoying. Why do you have to tell us what is happening on-screen? We can see for ourselves! This movie is just unwatchable. The only thing that wasn't terrible was the music.

Posted on May 5, 2007
- kohaku2080

It was okay...but the special effects and custom animations werent as good as I've come to expect from watching your movies. It wasnt as good as some of your other ones, and I felt that the subtitles detracted from the experience as well. Maybe a different font...?
anyway, it was as good idea, just not executed as well as I'm used to you doing...

I can't possibly say anything that hasn't been said before: this has to be the creepiest movie I ever saw! About halfway through I had to turn the lights on and open the door, because its impossible to watch in the dark, in a closed room, on your own. You feel like she's coming closer... closer... closer...

A very stylistic movie which was shot very well and damn, was it creepy or what!
I loved this short movie, it was excellent. Very good atmosphere you have created here, great music and excellent special effects. You are excellent at making any types of films, but one thing that makes each-one so unique is the fact that you make them very stylish. I respect that! Great work sidy once again!

Very cool and creepy. Nice work with the creepy partial ghost images. I liked the clock too... kind of showed how innocent the woman is. Good work trying to convey the story with the English subtitles... could have been better; but the message was conveyed still. The context of the story and the method of delivering it audio-visually outweighs any language barriers in my opinion. I hope your English is good enough to read all our reviews that you richly deserve.

FANTASTIC!!!!

I cannot beilieve the amazing effects you
keep adding to your films. They get better
and better!!! I LOVE YOUR WORK, I LOVE YOUR
TALENT, AND I LOVE YOUR CAPABILITY!!! I wish
one day I will be able to become as outstanding
as you are, but I know its not even possible,
because no one can measure up. The Japanese syle
you have is so unique and so popular now, it is
that amazing that you can capture it in every one
of your horrors. Great job once again, and good
luck on the rest of Kaidan's adaptations!!!

I don't bookmark alot of films, though this film I'm bookmarking!
The atmosphere and the music is just outstanding, and the music fits in perfectly with all of the scenes!
All I can say is thank god I'm not sitting in a dark room right now o.o , things like this makes me slightly paranoid.
Good job!

Music superb. Exellent voice. Very, Very good.

The storytellers style is adeguate for this short story. FreeCam was used well.
Good the "fix" scenes: give strange sensation.

Amazing Short Horror that shows your talent for Chilling Thrilling and Downright Nuketastic Suspense!!! Great Stuff and Very VERY Freaky. I felt uncomfortable watching that and that's exactly how it is meant to be done. Horror directors take note! it's not all about decapitations and blood gushing out everywhere. The power of the mind is the true path to a great Horror flick!

Nuke Well in The Odyssey!

Really nice... reminds me really on japanese horror like The Ring, Ju-On and all the others, which released also in the western part of the earth. ;-)
First it was really dull, a little bit boring too, - always the same: Woman, Awoke, Woman, Awoke, ... - but the scene, where the woman stand ahead the bed, was really shocking!

Although, nice horror-movie in japanese style!

- Ranedthel

I love this film but can not honestly FIVE STAR it. I love the Japanese language and then subtitles alowed me follow pretty well. As a story there is a great build up. The music, the pace, the intention of the film is wonderful but...

There is no depth here. No background as to why or even a hint and then there is the outcome, which is great, but again.....why? This ia a good movie worth the watching yet I was left flat.

Another completly amazing horror flick you made sidy. In my opinion your THE BEST horror director on TMO. Every one scares the hell out of me. This one was equally as scary as 'ON' and 'Chatroom'...whihc are some of my favorite movies on TMO, I think I'll add this to the list too.

I liked the voice of the woman who narrated this a lot, it was like a spooky bedtime story but one that is guaranteed to keep you awake rather than send you to sleep. Great special effects as usual.

I nice splice of J-Horror. I believe the term 'Yūrei' applies to this brand of ghost? One of the reasons I like the brand of horror is it's very much part of my own influences. The build up of tension and anticipation and the will they won't they and when you think they won't they will scenario. I can see the fear factor shine through. Proof again that you have mastered the art of genuine horror and it's difficult to comment where on TMO this could be topped.
