A good movie that illustrates a peculiarity of the Japanese world and that is the ability of assimilation and reworking ameliorative. In 2007 the young Israeli-American director Oren Peli turned to his house in 10 days with $ 15,000 for a movie based on a strong idea. A mockumentary about a couple who begin to detect disturbing phenomena in the house in which he lives; she reveals to his companion that actually since I was eight years old is haunted by paranormal presences and decide to film cha what happens during the night while they sleep. The film was a huge success in theaters and then European, becoming a case.
In 2010, Nagae Toshizaku has taken the film and did so “to the Japanese.” The story and the performance are very similar but the addition and / or removal of a number of details transform what was a good idea badly made a good film, tense and verosomigliante.
First of all the main characters are brother and sister and not a pair. In the second place they are eliminated a whole series of hysteria internal to the pair of the original films. Third is added to the temporary disability of the protagonist, a victim of a car accident, you must use a wheelchair (excellent ingredient terrifying). In general, the Japanese version is, as befits a truly creepy product, cold and dry, with no shortcuts to impress the viewer and for engaging in what depth.
Nagae, professional is the mockumentary that horror – her, among other TV series H ō s ō Kinshi (Banned from Broadcast) – is able to give us a similar product but definitely better than the original. Lights, photography and atmosphere of the final scene are extraordinary.
