Movie Info

Another Heaven, a Japanese supernatural crime drama directed by Joji Iida (director of Rasen, the first Ringu sequel), begins with cops on the scene of a bizarre homicide. A young man has been killed, his neck snapped, and there is a stew cooking on the stove. When a young detective, Manabu (Yosuke Eguchi), arrives on the scene, he quickly discovers that the corpse's brain is missing, and before long, the horrified policemen realize where the brain is. Before long, more brainless victims turn up, with their brains cooking nearby, and it becomes clear to Manabu and his grizzled older colleague (Yoshio Harada) that they have a culinary-inclined serial killer on their hands. Meanwhile, Manabu is seduced by a friendly ex-con, Asako (Kunihiko Ida), but he's interested in the more refined Dr. Sasamoto (Mikako Ichikawa), who works in the police lab. The killer, a beautiful coed, goes on one last spree, and just when the police are about to track her down, she somehow switches bodies with a hapless young man. He taunts Manabu, leaving his mangled victims with dedications scrawled in blood. As Manabu struggles to unravel the mystery, he begins to suspect that one of the women he's involved with may be possessed by the killer.

Audience Reviews for Another Heaven

Actually I think the story worked... until the middle. However, once again, Japanese movies love to drag till you lost all your patience.


Pretty good Horror Asian Movie, supernatural powers at work. 4 1/2tars
