Audience Reviews for Chô kowai hanashi A: yami no karasu (Cursed)
Surprisingly good low-budget Japanese horror flick about a haunted (cursed) mini-mart and the bad stuff that happens to those that work and shop there. Doesn't take itself too seriously. Does have some really nice creepy sequences. Kind of disconnected, but well done and very creepy at times. [Note to self: it is a bad sign if the cash register at your workplace consistently rings up totals as 666.]
Rather pointless, or plotless. It seemed to be weirdness for weirdness' sake, and while that can work for some Japanese horror films (like Kowai Onna) I wasn't really buying it here. It's not bad for a low budget effort, but only having some explanation after an hour of bizzare deaths... well, the deaths get boring if you don't see the point. However, there are good images and ideas within the film, such as the alleyway ghost and the ghost that comes out of the fridge (comedy gold, but also a little creepy), so it's not all bad. I'm just glad I rented it first.
This Japanese horror flick with a generous helping of comic relief starts with a bang, moves fast, and ends leaving you feeling thoroughly entertained, all in 80 minutes.
