very well done
first of all i would like to say this is the first film I’ve seen since REC that had me wishing i was’nt watching alone in the dark. just finished this and wow! very well done, i was glued to the screen. typical kind of set up girl and father move because the mother has just passed away, but apart from that i found everything to be quite original. The apartment block is quite creepy as are the other residents. There are no real special effects or blood but i think thats a good thing because the script is excellent and the atmosphere and surrounding’s are so dark and depressing it’s not needed, and the ending wow, wow, and wow! totally unexpected. overall not quite as good as ringu but not far off i would recommend to anyone who likes Japanese horror and people who don’t. p.s first comment and just getting used to new computer so sorry about spelling and grammar.
Little heard of, but this Asian ghost story hits all the right marks
As more and more cheesy, unoriginal horror films emerge from Hollywood to bore their audiences rather than frighten them, some cinema goers are turning more and more to the east for their frights and chills. For approximately a decade now there’s been a real renaissance in terms of Asian horror flicks, films which champion subtlety and old-fashioned fear over dodgy gore and rubbishy CGI. HAUNTED APARTMENTS is one of these films, a feature-length spin off of a television series called TALES OF TERROR from Japan. At first sight, it’s a familiar-looking tale indeed; the ghostly antagonist is a teenage girl with long black hair who pops up to scare the leading characters. However, HAUNTED APARTMENTS is different enough to provide more than enough new scares for even the most jaded viewer.
For starters, I liked the freshness of the plot. It’s simple and it works: if residents go outside of their apartment building after midnight, they die. Plenty of exciting situations are built out of this idea, along with the more traditional hauntings which take place within the building. There’s a ton of very scary moments, whether they come from the hideously rotted spirit coming for its victims or the poltergeist-style weirdness that torments the inhabitants at night. One scene, with a little boy being dragged along the floor by an unseen presence, is the scariest thing I’ve seen in ages. No jarring music, no fancy special effects work, no overacting from the cast; just solid frights that tighten the chest and constrain the breathing.
The cast is quite wonderful. Following in the Japanese tradition of understated acting, Kurokawa leads things as the investigative schoolgirl, a fragile yet determined character. The actor playing her father handles a subtle role very well, while the assorted characters playing the other inhabitants make for an engagingly weird bunch. There’s even a shocking moment when they gang up on our protagonists, bound together by common hatred; their subsequent NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD-style attack on the apartment is sure to have the pulses pounding. Things culminate with an outré twist that seeks to explain the back story to this film; it’s not perfect but it does wrap things up nicely. A genuinely great example of Asian horror cinema.
