Critic Reviews for Suicide Club
Shion Sono tente beaucoup plus de choquer son public [...] que de cerner adéquatement son sujet dont le potentiel justifiait amplement la mise en chantier
...contains an outstanding premise, but mucks it up with inexplicable plot developments and an infuriatingly open-ended conclusion.
The film's an odd blend of mystery, social commentary, experimental freak-out, and all-out horror, and while the blend doesn't always work... it works well enough.
An exceptionally unique movie dying to be rescued from what is essentially a mild case of hubris.

What's great about Japanese horror, is that no matter what the films they will scare you blind. Now with Suicide Club, they take a whole new concept of what we're afraid of the most and they create something that horrifyingly effective. A very original film compared to all the new reimagining's of classic Horror films, Suicide Club is an original scare fest, and it genuinely scares you and there's plenty of great tense moments to be had within the film. A must watch. Suicide Club is a harrowing nightmare of a film, a truly terrific concept for its plot with a decent cast make this a terrific little known gem in Asian Horror.

A fine low Budget film, Suicide Club is a film that has an interesting idea for a film, and the directors clearly have an idea what makes an effective horror film by conveying a new type of fear on their audience.

Director Sion Sono is a good director and he has crafted a memorable that will be hard to forget long after you've seen it. A film definitely worth your time, one that has a very chilling concept and is hard to forget.
Cult Japanese shocker about a new Suicide trend that has started to sweep across Japan affecting it's youth with the police trying to unravel the causes behind it. After a few years of waiting for a UK release I was a little disappointed having finally got to see it. The main grievance is that there really are no answers and nothing is explained in a conventional way, so it didn't make for very satisfying viewing as at the end I was very confused. A good enough film none-the-less, it has it's memorable moments, mostly from the scenes of suicide which are often bloody (some CGI) and with a very black sense of humour. And the social critique on people who blindly follow the latest trends was also a fun touch. Another viewing of this in the future may go down better with me, still a worthwhile look though.
The mass suicide at the very beginning of the movie is sure to achieve attention of most of the viewers. The movie becomes more thrilling and chilling as it progresses. However, after a point, it turns into a sort of comedy. Also, I didn't like the message/explanation provided therein.
