The Japanese version was decent, but this is a weaker copy. The major scares have been replicated, and a lot of the tension and jumps have been successfully retained, but the film as a whole is very Americanised and glossy, which hurts the immersion. The screenplay is also confusing and parts don't make sense.
Meh. Spectacularly banal plot.
Much more straight forward than the original and it is better for it.
Kayako gonna get ya.
