"This is a notice for all buyers that the film being sold here is a Japanese film, not an American film of the same name. The cover is of the Japanese horror film. The descriptions are mixed up-the cast is listed as all American names but yet the description shows that the film is in Japanese-and the time, date of release and studio all match the Japanese film of the same name.
Here is the description off the back cover:
"Following her father's death, Mirai moves into a house with her uncle and his wife but finds herself lost and confused as she begins to have horrible visions. Mysteriously people around her begin dying one by one and Mirai sets off on a desperate search into her past in an attempt to find the murderer. The past uncovers a mystery that is linked to a startling family secret."
OK, I watched this film and it starts off like it was a made-for-TV movie, and by that I only mean the lighting is different-it has that television show quality. The story starts off a bit disjointed but picks up when Miria starts having these visions and friends get killed off. As she investigates (with help from a cute friend that has more than a friendly interest in her), she digs deeper and deeper into a mystery that could get her killed trying to solve it. It has some good plot twists and the ending isn't predictable, so it is fresh enough that fans of Asian horror will likely be satisfied. I gave it four stars because there is always room for improvement.
