    I don't mean to hype it up but I'd be really surprised if you didn't like it

    Ok, I watched Noroi: The Curse on Friday. First off, let me say how much I love the fact that I was able to see the whole thing on YouTube. If this sort of thing had been available a decade ago, I would have so much more money than I do right now, and a hell of a lot more shelf space. Goddamn. Normally, I'm not a fan of the idea, really, but since this is all shot with a handheld camera, the dip in picture quality really wasn't an issue. So, DieHard, good choice.

    And the movie... for anyone not familiar the story is a sort of faux documentary about a paranormal investigator in Japan who's become somewhat famous for the numerous investigation documentaries and shows he's put together. Turns out he has mysteriously disappeared after getting involved with a case, but he had just finished a doc before it happened, which is shown to us.

    His last documentary starts off looking at some people that have exhibited some actual psychic powers. A little girl, an actress and this probably schizophrenic guy. The little girl goes missing and the investigator tries to find her and enlists the other two psychics to help (sort of). Better if you go in not knowing much more than that, I think.

    I liked the movie quite a bit. I think it dragged some in the middle, two hours is a long run-time for a movie that is mostly an investigation, especially since the investigator guy isn't a terribly interesting character. Some of the investigative procedural bits were maybe a little too coincidental or lucky, but really it didn't distract from the enjoyment too much. It's a minor gripe.

    It's definitely a slow-burn movie, but it's pretty damn creepy in spots and there's some genuinely intense moments, too that work really nicely. Solid acting, a smart way to frame a found-footage flick and a good story. It wasn't good enough that I'm going to import a copy, but if I happened across a used one at Amoeba, I'd probably go ahead and pick it up to lend out to people I lend movies to. Quite enjoyable. 8/10



    And for my assignment, I pick Dr. Naysay and I assign The Innocents, which is on Netflix (https://movies.netflix.com/WiMovie/T...0?locale=en-US), but not available for streaming, apparently.



    If you've seen it already, then watch A Tale Of Two Sisters (Netflix : A Tale of Two Sisters).
