Editorial Reviews

Experience a new fear. Prepare for the unknown… You will see something you will never forget…Nao Shingaki has a part-time job at a mini-mart. Outwardly, it looks like any other mini-mart, but there is something unmistakably abnormal about the place. Inside, the air is choked with vengeful spirits. Outside, thebackyard reeks with a horrible smell. The owner of the mini-mart seems to be overjoyed by the severe injuries sustained by a sales rep for a majorfranchise; while his wife suffers from an unknown madness and spends all of her time staring into the security cameras. Now the spirits have claimed the souls of the night-shift clerk and several customers. Nao is now faced with the task of somehow trying to escape this demonic terror!

Customer Reviews

Pays hommage to many other movies, but mostly feels Hitchcock to me.
Thomas Porter
Could have been creepy but the overacting and the low production values and lacking special effects just make this a waste of time.
Charles W. Johnson II
Don't go into this film expecting too much, and you won't be disappointed.

I watched this film over the course of 2 nights, so I had time to ruminate over the things I'd watched... And I have to say this.... That after sleeping on it after watching 2/3 of the film, it occured to me that it is msking a play on conventional supernatural thrillers.

First, the plot: Nao has a part-time job at Mitsuya Mart, a store that is run by a whacked-out middle-age married couple, and has one other part-timer(forget his name), whom works at night. There isn't much of an actual plot, basically, the store is joining a chain of convenience stores called "Cosmo Mart", and a lady is taking inventory on their stock while Nao is repeatedly freaked out by the going-ons at Mitsuya Mart. Whether it be the creepy hooded dude or the crows crashing into the window, Nao is thouroughly freaked out.! And rightly so...

Although Cursed could've taken itself seriously,it doesn't, its always winking back at you, going "Haha!!!".! But its not self-indulgent, it just plays on a lot of this typical horror conventions, universal or strictly Asian conventions. For instence it plays on the whole "Scary" music trend. Only the "scary" music in this is REALLY BAD!!! The characters whom are posessed are soooo OVER the top!!! There is also a ghost whom "tries" to resemble the ghost from Ju-on as well(The fridge scene).

So overall, not a serious film, although it "appears" to be serious, there are some obvious clues to the contrary, such as: The laugh of the hooded character, the cartoonish eyeball effects of Nao's co-worker shortly after posession, and the overzealous insanity of a couple characters.

I would say, go in keeping in mind that this IS a horror film, so it has some good gore moments, and even some good scares, and is creepy, as long as you DON'T take it seriously.

God Bless & *enjoy* ~Amy

Anyone has to admit that a haunted 7/11 type store is a unique concept. The movie has a simpleton's plot, you don't need to have Tesla's IQ to figure this. You only have a few characters to deal with. The morbid couple who owns the store. The day shift clerk, and the night shift clerk. And last, the pretty lady from the Corporate Office doing an inventory of the store. I think this woman should have been the protagonist. And of course the innocent customers who get killed for committing the act of buying from the cursed store.

This movie is a fusion of what makes a horror movie. This includes the register ringing up totals of 666, 696, etc, a man chasing a lady customer (this was actually a good suspense part that left me breath taken and laughing for the sheer pleasure of being scared), the usual possession, and the couples maniacal laughter. You can actually slice these scenes out and figure, they'd all been borrowed from other horror movies. But you find these in one movie called the Curse.

They of course reveal the reason why that darn store is Cursed. And the explanation is very much like another movie, titled Poltergeist.

Yeah, it's entertaining. Enjoy.

Format: DVD
"Cursed," is an average 'B' horror film from Japan. And as many of the reviewers have noted, it doesn't take itself too seriously. The film was directed by Yoshiro Hoshino, and I personally don't think he meant the film to be taken too seriously. [However, I may be wrong]. Don't go into this film expecting too much, and you won't be disappointed. The films narrative revolves around a haunted mini-mart. The owners of the mini-mart are a very strange husband and wife. The owner (Etsuyo Mitani) and his wife (Osamu Takahashi) have a few screws loose: As they spend most of their time watching the stores video surveillance cameras.

Enter Nao Shinagaki (Hiroko Sato) who is a part-time employee in the store. The cash register is very strange indeed. Whatever the customers buy in the store, the same number pops up on the register: 666 or 999 yen. Moreover, anyone who buys something in this store eventually winds up dead. An evil spirit follows the victims home. However, each haunting is different, and the same spirit never follows the victims home. Furthermore, each of the hauntings and killings are completely different from each other.

The film is not too high on the scare factor, but there is a creepiness to the film nonetheless. Just don't expect too much in the scare factor. Also, the film is very low budget, and this shows in the film. The films main protagonist Nao (Hiroko Sato) begins to notice the strange happenings at the mini-mart, not to mention the odd and very strange owners of the store. There is not much in regards to great special effects. However, the film is worth watching. Also, there are no special features on the DVD, as it is pretty much bare bones. Recommended for those who love J-Horror. However, you might want to rent it first.

Nao (Hiroko Satô) works at a haunted convenience store. Customers die. Would be customers die. The owners are odd and no one works there very long. The haunting and killings does not generate a lot of horror. An hour into the film a woman with a doll for a baby, not played by Jessica Biel, explains the curse. The explanation was anti-climatic to a story that really doesn't have a climax.

All those crows on the DVD cover are not in the film. Think two crows flying into a window. The film is different and had potential as a humorous horror, but didn't quite make it. Perhaps the funniest aspect was the misspelling English subscript. the owner would "correct the insurance money." It might be pronounced that way in Japan, but it really is "collect."

3 star cheese.
