They are used to tell the past, but for a few unlucky individuals, they foretell the future. When Hideki picks up a newspaper he knows what he will see...death. Foretelling ill-omened fate of everything from slayings to train crashes, there is nothing Hideki can do to stop the event... or is there? When the paper predicts the demise of his daughter in a car crash, Hideki seeks out other like himself, searching for a way to change the future.

  • Norio Tsuruta's J-horror film, the second in a planned trilogy, has its derivative elements, but overall is a surprisingly clever and well-crafted supernatural suspense tale.

  • A pair of excellent performances, a few fantastic little thrills, and a mind-twister of a finale that's as semi-confusing as it is strangely satisfying.

Audience Reviews for Yogen (Premonition)

Modest, and quite decent, horror affair, that steps away from the ringu/ju on crowd to tell it's own story of the supernatural. Good performances, and enough disturbing moments to keep you watching.

Watchable supernatural J-Horror about a guy that recieves premonitions of impending fatal disasters but acting on them will mean his own death in return. Not the most original of premises with different variations of the theme appearing in films like the "Ringu" series and "The Final Destination" franchise. "Premonition" still manages to be a decently entertaining movie with some creepy moments which are helped along by the effectively eerie music. Not really scary or gory at all but there are a couple of mild "eww" moments. It's not quite up there with the best of Asian horror but it's a solid effort and was good enough to spawn a Hollywood remake.

Excruciatingly slow. I found myself hitting fast forward more than once just to speed things up! Picks up at the end, but could not highly recommend it.

Now I'm not at all a fan of horror films... much less would I go look for horror films from Japan but such is the case this time. I rented this one after a friend recommended it. -_- I shouldn't listen when my friends recommend me films... or maybe just horror flicks. It usually means that I'll end up shouting, scared as hell and as always utterly angry for having wasted 95 minutes of my life. Well I suppose this one carries such cheaps scares but frankly this one had a certain emotional depth to it... or emotionally draining. I mean only the first scene was enough to grab my attention and for my jaw to hit the floor. There goes this nice little singing family on some sort of road trip and they stop by a payphone to get internet service because Dad is working and needs to send some data. And so they stop in the middle of nowhere and Dad is doing his work on the booth while Mom and Daughter wait in car. Dad keeps on waiting and as he waits he notices this very odd newspaper in the booth and picks it up. Of course, this particular newspaper carries some very bad news. It has a story about a little girl who died the day before in a car accident. Strange, isn't it? Even more stranger is when he looks at the picture of this little girl and surprisingly this particular girl has the same name as his... daughter? And she died around 8 PM. *looks at clock* It's about 8:58 PM.
