Critic Reviews for Stare (Shirai-san)

All Critics (5) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (1)

  • Otsuichi does not stop with the obvious conclusion that cellphones and the internet are bad. Instead, his film pinpoints the omnipresence of meaningless details on social media as the culprit.

  • "Stare mystifies as a chilling, effective J-horror - even with a somewhat stale format."

    Aug 9, 2019 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…
  • Despite a few minor tweaks, the addition of gore by way of eye trauma, and a modern polish on an old trope, 'Stare' doesn't stray far from the J-horror formula introduced by 'Ringu' two decades ago.

    Jul 29, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Stare has all the makings of an excellent J-horror, even if it does drag in places and reinvents its own rules too many times. It may ultimately only pay off as a minor entry into the genre, but it's an entertaining one all the same.

    Jul 25, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Stare is an excellent example of how keeping it simple lies at the heart of truly effective horror.
