    it all makes perfect sense, the film is NOT a horror movie at all, it is the spoiler

    An incredibly unpleasant and effective film from Japanese director Takashi Miike, who after seeing this and Ichi the Killer is a director that I will be keeping an eye on. Audition is directed with absolute skill, filled with great perfromances and some very creepy scenes that will stick in your mind for hours after you have seen it.

    The only way I can sum up this movie, is that to me, this has to be every guy's worst nightmare. And I am not going to lie, this will probably make you think twice before you go on a date with someone :)

    Highly recommended, but stay away if you're very squeamish.
