Compelling And Creepy Asian Horror.
Another one of the “8 Films To Die For” from After Dark’s Horror Film Festival, this little Japanese chiller is a complex and spooky film. The movie follows Nagisa, a Japanese actress who gets the part in a horror movie that is based on a real murder spree that took place in a large hotel forty-some years ago. At first she is excited that she has gotten the part, and is looking forward to filming, although it is a “scary movie” that she is being a part of. But things begin to get a little spooky, when Nagisa begins seeing a ghostly little girl everywhere. Her visions intensify when the film’s director takes the cast to the real hotel where the actual murders happened, for inspiration. It seems she has a connection with the hotel and the grisly murders… but how, and why? She may find out the answer very soon…
I haven’t seen a lot of Asian horror, I saw part of the original “Ju-On”, and I’ve seen the remakes of those films, but that was about it. Although I haven’t seen much of it, I know what it’s like pretty well. So, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect going into this film – luckily, I was pleasantly surprised. “Reincarnation”, or “Rinne” in it’s original language, is a solid supernatural horror film that rose far above my expectations. The writing here is really nicely done, I must say. It has a few inconsistencies here and there, but nothing too major. About midway through the film, I thought that I had everything figured out – I was almost positive that I knew what the whole plot “twist” was going to turn out to be. I was pretty confident that I had all of it figured out. Then, during the final five minutes of the film, my entire assumption disintegrated, leaving me minorly shocked. I’m not sure about the rest of you, but I did not see the plot twist coming. I suppose what I was expecting to be the twist in the film was a set-up to trick the audience, and I have to admit it worked on me.
Along with the intelligent writing, director Takashi Shimuzu (who directed “Ju-On” and “Ju-On 2”, and both American remakes of those films (“The Grudge” and “The Grudge 2”), has an eye for the eerie. Unlike the style that is found in “The Grudge” films, “Reincarnation” boasts a subtle spookiness that I personally find much more menacing than those annoying ‘jump scares’. There are numerous shots and scenes in this film that are hard to forget, and the direction is great. Lots of creepy shots and disturbing imagery (the homemade snuff footage is beyond eerie) really make this a creepy film. The music is good as well, and fits the movie perfectly. It’s slow and subtle, just like the film is itself. Acting-wise, I’d have to say the movie succeeds as well. The performers are pretty believable, and while there is the language barrier, I thought they were really good. Again, the conclusion to this movie is the real kicker. I was surprised and creeped out by the way the entire thing came to a close.
Overall, “Reincarnation” is a really good supernatural horror film. Take your traditional ghost story, throw in a hotel, and the reincarnation theme, and you’ve got this movie. If you enjoy slow moving horror films and/or are a fan of Japanese horror, I’d recommend this film. It has a few very minor problems, but the good easily outweighs the bad. And the ending is really surprising. I’m not sure if it fits everyone’s tastes, but for me, I couldn’t have picked a better foreign horror flick. 8/10.
***SPOILERS**** Has to be seen at least twice, like being reincarnated, to really appreciate what a great psychological thriller “Renni” or “Reincarnation” really is. The film gets somewhat confused and esoteric at times, especially in the first five or so minutes, but when it gets down to business just watch out!
Making a horror/suspense film about a bloody massacre that took place back in 1970 at the now abandoned Ono Kanko Hotel outside of Tokyo top Japanese movie director Ikuo Matsumura, Kippei Shiina, cast actress Nagisa Sugiora, Yuka, in the leading role. Nagisa is to play one of the victims of the hotel slaughter the six year old daughter Norishasa, Atsuhsi Haruta, of crazed killer Professor Kazuya Omori, Shun Oguri.
What would be the part of a lifetime for the young and practically unknown actress turns out to be a nightmare for her. Telling her good friend and acting teacher Tadashi, Tetta Sugimoto, that she feels strange playing Omori’s murdered daughter in that she sees the young girl in both her dreams as well as while she’s awake and fully conscious! There’s a scene when Nagisa, while she’s with Tadashi, is on the Tokyo Subway and suddenly sees young Norishasa with her battered, with it’s left eye busted, doll standing right in front of her! With Nagisa turning away for a split second to alert Tadashi to what she saw both Norishasa and the doll disappears in a flash!
As the movie goes into production Nagisa begins to become spooked whenever she’s to act out a scene in it. Seeing in a number of visions of the insane Professor Omori doing his dirty work slaughtering the people in the hotel Nagisa also sees him recording his bloody work with a 1950’s style 8mm Bell & Howell movie camera! It later turns out that Omori, through his secret writings, was obsessed with the theory of reincarnation and in his madness went out to prove it by killing everyone in the hotel, himself included, so they can come back in other lives to prove his point!
By now Nagisa is fully convinced that she’s actually the reincarnation of Professor Omori’s murdered daughter Norishasa. It’s when things suddenly start to magically materialize in her hotel room, almost out of thin air, right in front of Nagisa’s eyes, like Norishasa’s doll and her father’s movie movie camera, that it becomes apparent that Nagisa’s greatest fears have more then just a a grain of truth in them.
***MAJOR SPOILERS FROM THIS POINT ON*** Nagisa gives the mysterious movie camera to her friend Tadashi to have the film in it developed and see what exactly is recorded on it. This all takes a number of days for Tadashi in him trying to find a photo lab, being that almost everything now is “filmed” on video tape and DVD discs, that could process the film. When the movie camera film is finally processed Tadashi has it screened in front of Director Matsumura and his film crew. What they see is a horror that even the most brutal and bloody slasher movie couldn’t duplicate! The film also shows that not only is reincarnation real but who the brutal and psychotic killer Proffesor Kazuya Omori really is! Not back then in 1970 but now in his new incarnation!
