Noroi: The Curse, 2005 – ★★★

It took me months of watching this in parts to finish it, and Kagutabi Damien is still missing to this day.

Order up some slurpy ramen noodles and put away your modern day horror expectations. You’ll have to because this one has very little believability.

Still, it’s atmospheric and fun to watch what I consider a well made project. Vision was seen through to completion.  The protagonist looked a lot like the policeman in “The Wailing” and I couldn’t help but compare the two. The latter is far better. Well, I’m proud to say this one can be taken off the old watchlist! Not too bad. See “The Wailing” first, for sure.
