Takes too many liberties with the meaning of reincarnation--making it into a gross literal reality.
Shimizu's prodigious talent as a scare-master are still on display, so the film features a handful of virtuoso sequences.
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.
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.
On the whole, I think the best American directors are more talented than the best Japanese ones, but Japanese directors know how to make more out of less. Their movies have, on average, one-tenth of the budgets of American movies, and yet they still pull the strings together with alarming competence.
I say this because Reincarnation is of surprising quality for one of these After Dark horror turd-heaps - without having seen the other seven, I'm pretty sure this will be the best of them. And hell, it's not even that great, with a murky plot and recycled scare tactics. There are a few neat shocks and occasional fancy camera tricks, but the movie is just underwhelming...especially the human aspect. The performances are underwhelming and the characters are sloppy and unsympathetic - Reincarnation spent so much time repeating its plot and trying to force it to make sense that it didn't bother to develop decent characters.
I don't recommend this. It's not atrocious, but it bodes ill for the Horrorfest catalogue.
