Don't Look Up is a movie that offers quality cinematography, but isn't theater-quality because of plot holes and weak performances.

Director Fruit Chan gained a cult following thanks to the underground success of "Gaau Ji" (Dumplings), his short film on the "3 Extremes" DVD. I enjoyed his work on that film, and even though Dumplings wasn't an overt horror film, it was more chilling than this one. Chan makes for a visually pleasing movie, but he would have done better with a different story.

The marketing behind the movie is also misleading. The DVD cover states "From the creator of The Ring comes a new vision in terror." Only it's not new, it's a story that Hideo Nakata came up with for a movie he shot several years before The Ring. The original version of Don't Look Up wasn't especially popular, and the 2009 remake isn't remotely as scary as The Ring.

I definitely enjoyed Reshad Strik's performance in the Hills Have Eyes 2 (bearded young guy), but was disappointed with him in this film. As a psychologically troubled young film director, Strik overreacts being afraid to the point where it's almost comical. Eli Roth (Donny the Bear Jew from Inglourious Basterds) gets top billing in this film, but he gets only about a minute of actual screen time. Film veteran Kevin Corrigan is a welcome addition to the cast, as is the seriously hot Carmen Chaplin.

My biggest complaints about the film include the plot holes and use of too many subplots. The bottom line is that the movie is made more confusing than it had to be. There's a bit of gore for hardcore horror fans, though the CGI may disappoint some people. Nakata also recycled one idea involving a fly from this movie to The Ring.

Not that a truly scary movies always makes a good movie as far as horror movies go... However The execution of the movie is done just right so that it isn't too disgusting, while still disturbing you quite a bit. Hidieo Nakata (creator of The Ring and this film) must be really talented because even though it has the whole angry ghost in common this is nothing like The Ring and still very intriguing in it's own way... Very cool story not like the other movies that reel you in with a dramatic and nicely drawn cover just so you can end up watching another story-less, comedic but overall worthless, waste of time that lives you more unsatisfied than you were before the movie... from the cover it looks like another one of those silly b-horror titled that somehow was not categorized as such. Also from the cover it could be confused for a boring drama of sort but it isn't, Lol don't watch this alone, or if you do, keep your wits about you, some scenes catch you completely off-guard!

Don't Look Up (Fruit Chan, 2009)

Had you told me in 2008 that Hollywood would import Fruit Chan, the director of the phenomenal little flick Dumplings, to do Yet Another Asian Horror remake, I'd have laughed at you. If you then told me that Chan would bungle the movie almost completely, I probably would have been laughing so hard I wouldn't have been able to breathe.

And yet here we are with Don't Look Up, a remake of Hideo Nakata's 1996 flick Jôyu-rei. And it is almost as horrible as the critics would have you believe.

Plot: a film crew working on a low-budget horror picture (why can't film crews in horror films ever be working on, say, a lavish costume drama?) discovers footage of a much older film shot in the same location by cult director Bela Olt (Inglorious Bastards' Eli Roth), who, according to the local folklore, went insane during filming, as did most of the surviving cast and crew after one cataclysmic night of bloodshed. Of course, the present-day film crew, headed up by equally obsessed director Marcus Reed (The Hills Have Eyes II's Reshad Strik) and producer Josh Petri (Gangs of New York's Henry Thomas), puts no stock in such stories...but after they view the old footage, strange things start occurring on the the ghost of lead actress Lila Kis (You Don't Mess with the Zohan's Rachael Murphy), or the witch she was portraying in that old film, haunting the new production?

All of which sounds good. And by all rights, from everything I've heard, it is good, when directed by Hideo Nakata. But this? This is just another bad re-tread, made all the worse for being directed by a guy who is, when not working within the confines of Hollywood, one of Japan's most innovative, witty directors. How did this go so horribly wrong? We may never know the answer to that question, but there can be no argument about the fact that something certainly did. Perhaps the production was haunted by the spectre of Yasuyo Shirashima? **

Forget looking up...just DON'T!

Another American J-Horror remake of...something...that is virtually incomprehensible.

A film crew doing a remake of a "doomed" silent film are attacked by evil spirits and lots and lots of terrible CGI flies. Despite the advertising, Eli Roth is in the film for less than five minutes before the opening credits.

Instead, we gets lots of shots of the attractive yet wooden and thoroughly unlikable leading man standing open-mouthed amid swarms of aforementioned terrible CGI flies, causing me to recall the scoldings of Sister Ruth Ann in second grade shouting, "Close your mouth, before you start catching flies!!"
