A suburban town in Japan is the victim of what is supposedly just an urban legend, a woman's spirit with a horribly disfigured face who is intent on kidnapping children for unknown reasons.
Am I pretty?
Did You Know?
The film is based on a Japanese legend in which a samurai's wife was caught cheating on him, and he slit her mouth open. The same woman roams foggy streets, with a surgical mask on, and asks people she encounters, "Am I beautiful?". If they say, "Yes" she removes her mask and says, "Even like this?", and then slits their mouth. If they say "No" she cuts them in half. If they say "Average", she will allow them to escape. See more
Towards the end of the film when Kyoko is possessed by the Slit-Mouthed Woman, she holds scissors up. In far shot we see her raise the scissors, but in a close up, she raises the scissors again. See more
