Movie Info

Yuichi Sato's Japanese horror film Pray opens with two down-and-outers, the conniving Mitsuru (Tetsuji Tamayama) and ruthless Maki (Asami Mizukawa), who -- desperate for money -- abduct a young girl and hole up in a defunct schoolhouse until her guardians pay up. The only problem: their victim is actually a victimizer -- the knife-wielding spirit of a child who died exactly one year ago and, obsessed with vengeance, will stop at nothing to drive her captors into their graves. Kouko Mori, Sanae Miyata, and Fumiyo Kohinata co-star. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Pray

An interesting chore to handle & sit thru. This movie actually made me angry with questions like "WTF is this movie about!?!". Tho I found the plot to be very good, as I sat there & grappled with the subtitles this movie played & I found it more than interesting while I found it to be more than a little suffering from a lack of character development!! I was surprised actually that the acting was so good since the character development was so poor. I'm praying that this movie is remade with Delroy Lindo, Christopher Walken, Angelina Jolie & John Cusack,... For crying out loud, do justice to a good movie, fu very much; do right by it and what it deserves or don't make the movie at all!

A great concept that just plays out poorly. Decent acting by the two leads, but the little girl role is not mysterious enough; not sure if thats the poor script or the acting to blame there. It might have played out better if the producer invested in some 100 watt light bulbs and illuminated the sets a bit; movies played out in near darkness do not necessarily equate to scarier scenes. Pacing likewise is plodding despite a very quick start. Overall a good idea that either ran out of steam or executed below my expectations.

Some interesting twists are scattered throughout the film but the pacing is so slow and the characters so uninteresting that it makes the film a chore to watch. However, the ending does have a nice little surprise that I did not foresee, but was hardly worth the time I invested to get there.
