"Crazy" is a fairly apt description of this film. What starts and feels like an unexceptional and predictable horror film continues to defy narrative expectations by taking one weird turn after another. Not that this makes the film terrific by any means, but it certainly kept me engaged enough to keep watching. The director was clearly influenced by Twin Peaks and David Lynch, and not all in good ways.

Crazy is definitely an understatement here. I feel sorry for the folks who rented this because of the cover of the DVD stating that it's from the same folk who brought you The RIng, Ju-on and Audition, because this is a bizarre, bizarre film. A mother and 2 sisters seek the help of a psychic couple to prove that their brother hasn't followed their father's footsteps and become a murderer. Sounds fairly straight forward huh? Add to that kung fu, necrophilia, rape, a musical number, sexy dancing newscasters and lots of weirdness and most folks would be throwing their remote at the TV. Not me though, I quite dug it. Sure it's strange, but it's consistently entertaining and certainly unpredictable to say the least. Now I got to watch the sequel, Gore From Outer Space!
