I have mixed feelings about this one. It looks like it is based on a Japanese horror movie. If not, it sure does borrow from the Japanese horror film genre. Very quickly, main character is a photographer who recently got married.
Wife is driving on the road and sees a girl walking across the road suddenly. She swerves but hits her and crashes into a tree. Police arrive, but can't find the body. Flash forward to Japan. A strange thing happens when they take pictures: a white light image appears in their photos. Oh, did I mention that the girl manifests herself to them as well. The rest of the movie follows the wife and how she unravels the mystery of the girl. I won't go into detail because it will give away the story.
Dislikes: no scary points. Nothing that made me jump like other Japanese movies; slow moving characters unrealistic. I mean, if some guy is touching your woman right in front of you, wouldn't you be mad or at least say something?
un-original, plain story
It is not to say that it is a bad movie. It's just that it wasn't scary enough for me or made me jump. This is definitely a rental.
