A clever revenge-type horror film mixed with drama and mystery. I like this one. No scary ghosts involved unlike Death Bell (though they were just dreams but still ghosts are ghosts). Just pure human wickedness BUT it's still creepy. The gore is kinda manageable but its better if you don't eat anything while watching, just in case. It also delves into the complexities of the human mind, behavior, character and emotions. Just how far a mother would go to avenge her daughter's death?
My Rainy Days
Ah, this is a good one. Not your typical shoujo type of story. Finally, a dynamic heroine who I adore. Someone who, at first, had the mind/attitude of a villain but a heart of a saint. It also deals so much about friendship, kindness, trust and self-worth so I highly recommend this when you're having movie marathon with friends. Or you can watch it together with your significant other. This movie is so cute (almost manga-ish type) and a bit of a tear-jerker.
Aoi Haru (Blue Spring)
I like this one so much because of the main character. He's indifferent, cool and cute. My usual type lol. Anyway, the story is about friendship and life. Do you remember those final moments in high school when you struggle with your decisions? What course to take in college or just what to do with your life? And then you began to worry about the future or get jealous with your friends. This is what I remembered mostly and what I think this movie is all about. Seriously, this youth drama film is worth watching. (I actually got some screen caps here and here.)
I've read the manga but I haven't finished it yet. This one is a must see. It's pretty entertaining. There's a lot of action and killing going on and some surprises. By the way, Chiaki Kuriyama aka "Gogo Yubari" in Kill Bill is also included in the cast.
