Reincarnation – After Dark Horror Fest – 8 Films To Die For

“Nagisa Sugiura (Yuka) is a young Japanese actress who comes face to face with a slew of ghosts. These restless spirits begin to appear when she signs on to star in a horror film which tells the true story about a crazed, local professor whose murderous rampage at a hotel left 11 guests dead, including his young son and daughter. The movie is being filmed at the very site where the killings took place.”

This movie is the best in the series so far from the director of Ringu and Ju-On. It has an interesting plot in that a director goes on location to where are a series of murders took place so he can make a movie about the people who died.

After getting a role in the movie an actress begins to see strange visions of the people who died. In typical style of The Ring and The Grudge there is a lot going on in the background rather than the main scene. Something will move in the background or just out of the scene to make you wonder if you saw something.

As the movie unfolds the visions get more and more blatant. The young actress is reliving the murders and seeing them as though she were there.

Takashi Shimizu is used to working on a low budget and he makes this movie work. The minimalist style also makes the movie seem more dreadful and bleak. It has a solid plot and you get drawn into what’s happening. This was a fun movie to watch and if you’ve seen his other J-Horror this movie sticks with his style. More of a thriller than a gore fest this might end up being reworked into another American-ized release.

This one is worth renting and stands a benchmark for budget horror film making.
