Editorial Reviews

They are used to tell the past, but for a few unlucky individuals, they foretell the future. When Hideki picks up a newspaper he knows what he will see...death. Foretelling ill-omened fate of everything from slayings to train crashes, there is nothing Hideki can do to stop the event... or is there? When the paper predicts the demise of his daughter in a car crash, Hideki seeks out other like himself, searching for a way to change the future.

I am into Japanese horror films and I absolutely loved this movie!!!
T.Graham
If I say much more, I will spoil the movie, but if you liked Ringu and Ju-On, I think you will like this movie as well.
L. Gildart
Anyways, the acting is good and the special effects are very well done.

Lions Gate Films recently cut a deal with a Japanese company and created a small sub-division within LGF aptly named J-Horror. The purpose of this division was to make 6 Japanese horror flicks specifically for the American DVD market. 'Premonition' is one of the first of these films released(the second, released simultaneously, is called 'Infection' and is also very much worth checking out).

The basic set-up goes like this: a couple and their daughter are driving home from a vacation. They stop along side the road at a telephone booth so the husband can attach his laptop to the phoneline so he could email some paperwork to his job. While in the phone booth, he finds a newspaper clipping that predicts his daughter dying in a motor vehicle accident. His wife exits the car to talk to him. Once the wife is out of the car, the husband freaks out over the newspaper, but before he can do anyting a dumptruck smashes their car(with daughter still inside)and the newspaper disappears. The car immediately explodes killing the little girl. Not long after, the couple divorces mostly due to the wife not believing her husband's claims about the newspaper. The husband starts receiving more newspapers predicting the future over the next six or so years and all the while the wife(now his ex)is doing research into the paranormal and the possible existence of this newspaper. The couple gets back together to try and figure out the escalating events...

'Premonition' is based on a thirty-or-so year old Japanese story called 'The Fear Newspaper'. Apparently over there, its pretty well known . Anyways, the acting is good and the special effects are very well done. The plot, while having some similarites to 'Ringu'(especially the original novel by Koji Suzuki), is pretty interesting.

Personally, I enjoyed Premonition, although I wasn't blown away. It's got solid acting, a fascinating (and often heart-wrenching) story, and some decent scares. However, don't expect an all out fright fest or you'll be sorely disappointed. This is a story-driven film, with a plot that progresses fairly slowly. Patience is necessary when viewing Premonition, as is a willingness to accept ambiguity and dream-like logic in a film. But for those of you who possess those qualities, and are looking for something a little different (particularly if you're a fan of the genre), Premonition might be for you.

This film was very well done in my opinion. It starts out as a family of three, a mother, father,and a girl, age 5, are traveling down the road, when the father mentions he needs to go back and use the pay phone. They go back, and he gets out to use it and notices a newspaper sticking out of the phone book. It read, Nana, age 5, dies in a car accident. He glances to his wife and child, and Nana mentions her seatbelt is stuck. The wife walks towards him and a car hits the car containing his child. It explodes and then she dies. The rest of the movie is about him seeing the newspaper repeatedly and trying to help others. I recommend this anyone who enjoys Japanese movies.

First of all, let me say that the current trend towards more and more gore in horror movies is not my cup of tea. I really appreciate movies like this, which rely more on story and acting than blood and gore.

I admired the performances of many of the actors, particularly watching Mikami-san grow progressively more frazzled (and perhaps a bit insane?) as the story progresses. He does a good job of taking you along on his character's strange journey (both of the supernatural and emotional sort). I was also impressed with how well Nori-p's grown up, both for her acting ability and how lovely she still is in her mid-30s ^_^ ! But that's a bit more shallow ^_^;;; . . .

A lot of reviewers seem to dislike the ending of this movie, but I loved it-- it gave the viewers something to think about rather than wrapping the ending up in a neat little package. I especially liked the moment when he finally seemed to "get it", that he'd been wasting all that time trying to change the future for others, when the only future one can (or should be able to) control is one's own.

Though it has its flaws, and its moments of cheese (like any horror flick, I suppose. . .), this is one I wouldn't mind owning and seeing again.

This movie was amazing. Upon renting this movie twice, I knew that it had to become a new addition to my horror movie family. The story is great. The acting was great. There's a few scares in here that will freak you out, but the story alone is so beautiful. You have to have to watch this movie. And I can bet you that after you watch it, you won't feel that you've wasted anything. You'll probably end up having this movie in your collection also. I love this movie so much. It's in my top 5 list of horror movies.

This is the first and BEST "Preminition" movie. This, the Asian version, progresses forward...the American version does not. So if you want continuity and progression and you are ready to be freaked out then buy this movie. Enjoy what a real horror movie is suppose to be.
