The premises with extreme potential brings disappointment. I expected a lot more from a France entry. Typically, a mixture of drama and brutal violence is handled well from the french, but this time it felt small, pointless and insignificant. Was the murderous creature even that bad and monsterish as depicted? The guy was just slightly ugly, too tall for his age and hairless, oh the fear! Although well crafted, much is left desired.
Starring Japan's on-screen favorite Tatsuya Fujiwara (best known for his roles in BATTLE ROYALE and DEATH NOTE the movie) as a mislead sociopath with supernatural powers. Thinking himself superior to the rest of ningen-kind, his world is flipped upside down when he finds someone capable of resisting his hypnotic powers and a battle to the death ensues. Satomi Ishihara stole hearts. However, the movie was a bit of a let down. The soundtrack was repetitive and grating. It started out a promising psychological thriller but quickly turned into a predictable bore.
