Reviews from critics

“Japanese film-maker Takashi Miike pretty well invented the genre of J-horror as it came to be understood with this shocking, scabrous, satirical movie from 1999…” – The Guardian

“…it’s ”Fatal Attraction” with a sense of morality instead of a need to pander…” – New York Times
