Noroi: The Curse
Dir. Kôji Shiraishi
A found footage film horror film done right. It was even shot on video. Giving that nice low budget documentary feel to it. Don’t expect many scares going in though. Like many other J-horror films before it, Noroi is all about atmosphere and suspense. The film is a bit long, slow paced, and convoluted. But it all builds up into this great climax that is truly unsettling. There’s a wrap-up and then an ending that just really gets under your skin. So turn off the lights, raise the volume, and watch this film.
