Critic Reviews for Stare (Shirai-san)

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (1)

  • 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.

    July 29, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Well-made, sufficiently eerie and with a fun spectre in Shirai-san, the film is worth checking out, and is several notches above Hideo Nakata's limp Sadako

    October 23, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • If you're a fan of Japanese horror, and Japanese ghost stories in particular, then you'll want to give Stare a look.

  • 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.

    August 19, 2019 | Full Review…
  • "Stare mystifies as a chilling, effective J-horror - even with a somewhat stale format."

    August 9, 2019 | Rating: 7/10 | 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.
