  • It's raw, it's unsettling, but time has not been kind to the movie. It still works. [Full review in Spanish].

  • This is the truly demonic power of the filmmaker's tools & of horror in general: to mask the utterly ordinary with the unbelievably extraordinary. On any reading, though, in pursuing the unknown & the occult, Kobayashi invites the devil into his home

Audience Reviews for Noroi the Curse

    The faux documentary format is very effective in creating an unsettling atmosphere. Relying on atmospherics, this one is a well crafted work.

    Noroi is a Japanese effort at the found-footage genre and comes off as one of the best. The film works as it employs what is best about Japanese horror. It develops an intriguing and involving mystery. The film begins with clips from all over the place. We get news footage, some documentary footage from a supernatural show, and clips from variety TV performances involving psychic children etc. At first none of this footage seems to connect, but gradually we see a piece here or there that fits into this intricate puzzle. Not only is the mystery exciting, but we are able to connect the dots ourselves. Noticing the familiarities and not having it spelled out. The creepy vibe is always present, but the true horror doesn't really begin until the third act. There were times when I honestly forgot I was watching a found footage film, and this added to the overall effect. A stunning piece for the genre as it takes it further and isn't afraid to invest in a complex story.

    The film is definitely creepy and scary, but it also very smartly goes building tension and suspense slowly, grabbing clues left and right and letting the puzzle pieces come together; the problem is, though, that by the end the puzzles don't seem all that clear as to what they say, but it was a fun ride anyway.

    I actually suprised myself with how much I enjoyed and liked this film. At first I wasn't that impressed as all the pieces of footage seemed random but as all the threads started to come together and we started to learn about Kagutaba I began to really get into it. The only thing that I'm not keen was the psychic; the actor was very believable and clearly talented but the character seemed so distressed all the time it felt cruel that the reporter was using him so much.
