Decent J-horror
6 September 2017 | by marcorivas54See all my reviews

Going through a list of Japanese horror films that I am watching I have come across several of which I've already seen but didn't realize. This is one of those films. First off we have a cast of cute high school girls especially Ai Shinozaki who played Kaho. She is a Japanese gravure idol who is extremely cute and has other good qualities if you know what I mean. So aside from the cast of cute girls we have a decent horror movie about a curse that kills people. The main character Eri (Natsumi Matsubara) starts this curse by putting cursed ashes in a teachers drink. What happens when people have these ashes is of course they are killed but the right arm is severed and missing. There are some creepy moments in this movie and it's a pretty decent film.
