Uzumaki/Spiral


--Reviewed by Lindy Loo


Plotline: Spirals (or uzumaki) are everywhere. So it perhaps comes as no surprise that they begin to haunt and obsess a small Japanese town.



Scariness factor: It has the scariness of the original Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, where it mostly just feels like you’re trying to wait out a really bad acid trip.

Gross-Out Factor: Hmmm. A bit of ear-stabbery and someone getting twisted up in a washing machine. I think you’ll be ok.



Complaints: I really really like the idea of this. But the execution of it wasn’t quite so great. It felt just really silly in parts. Other than that, I don’t really have a ton of complaints, other than to say in a general sort of way that it just didn’t quite do it for me.




High Points: The idea of this movie is fucked up and interesting: a town haunted by spirals. And it would probably be way enjoyable to watch when really really high. Either that or terrifying.

Overall: I feel kind of indifferent towards this flick. Some of the images are awesome, like the chick walking down the hallway with insane spiral hair. But nonetheless, it just didn’t blow my mind like I’d hoped.




Grade: B-

I just had to stop by this blog after reading "Come play with us Danny". That's my name. I like your blog. Creepy. And a good read for me since I enjoy the paranormal things.

Wow, can you say SPAM!! I love the title of your blog. Sooo awesomely creepy. The movie is definitely different but I don't think I could bring myself to watch it.
