    Good mystery movie, I wouldn't really call it a horror film because... it's just not scary. Well-made, thought provoking, tense, strange, entertaining? Yes. Scary? No. 9 years ago

    This is the film that basically started the J-Horror craze of the late 90's/early 2000's. I really enjoyed it although the effects were not as great as something that you would see in a Hollywood horror film. At the time of its release it was better than 95 % of the horror junk put out here in the states though. A lot of tension and an interesting ending. It has been too long since I have seen the American remake so I couldn't say which is better. 6 years 7 months ago

    Very scary ending with one shot that is now etched on my mind and makes me shiver every time I think about it.

    But aside from that, it's nothing to write home about.
