Movie Info

Grudge director Takeshi Shimizu returns to tell this tale of a film crew that descends upon a hotel that was once the scene of a vicious killing spree, only to find that the horrors of the past have a malevolent means of manifesting themselves in the present. Years after a professor slaughtered his wife, his young daughter, and nine hotel guests at the Ono Kanko just north of Tokyo, horror filmmaker Ikuo Matsumara (Kippei Shiina) and his crew prepare to make a movie about the murders. As pre-production on the film gets underway, the lead actress experiences a vivid vision of the murders and is shocked to awaken in the very room where the body of the professor's daughter was discovered. In her vision, the actress watched helplessly as the professor sadistically captures the final moments of his victims on film. When the actress finds the very same camera she saw the professor using in her vision and the cast members begin dying in the same manner as their real-life counterparts, it begins to appear as if the mad professor has returned from beyond the grave to ensure that his dark story never makes it to the silver screen.

Critic Reviews for Rinne (Reincarnation)

All Critics (3)

Takes too many liberties with the meaning of reincarnation--making it into a gross literal reality.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Shimizu's prodigious talent as a scare-master are still on display, so the film features a handful of virtuoso sequences.

Full Review… | July 12, 2008

Sem conseguir criar o clima de inquietação exigido pelo roteiro, Shimizu não percebe sequer a falta de personalidade da fotografia de seu filme, comprovando mesmo ser um sub-Hideo Nakata.

Audience Reviews for Rinne (Reincarnation)


Can be confusing if you don't pay attention, but some real scares in this one. I jumped a few times! Japanese horrors with creepy ass kids and spooky looking dolls. Really not a combination that can be beaten. I didn't guess the twist at the end at all.

No perfect...but one of the best that I've seen from the "Films To DIe For" series.

An actress is haunted by visions of a young girl, then finds herself cast in the role of the real-life murder victim who is haunting her. Atmospheric J-horror that plays out like a subtler version of THE SHINING.
