Editorial Reviews

Thirty-five years after the slaughter, a film director returns to the scene of a mass murder to recreate the gruesome killings on film. As he and his crew step foot into the now abandoned hotel, the cast members begin to see creepy visions and have nightmares. When shooting commences, the cast members begin to suffer very familiar fates...the exact fates they are to act out in the film...

4.0 out of 5 stars Good selection for horror fans March 27, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
After reading several of the reviews posted for this product, I noticed that many people rate it simply because of the price, and fewer for the actual films contained in the set. Since my wife manages the local Blockbuster, we were fortunate enough to be able to watch all seven of these films for free before they were released to the public.

And I have to say, even though I have already seen them for free, I still forked over the 100+ dollars to own the set. Why?

Every fan of horror films knows the unfathomable despair one sinks into when they bring home the latest direct-to-video flick, slide it into their DVD player, curl up on the sofa with some popcorn and beer, only to be subjected to the worst piece of filth ever to call itself a film. And Lion's Gate is guilty of producing such garbage on many occasions.

Not this time, however. I thoroughly enjoyed each of the films in the set -- ranging from creepy ghost stories, to unique twists on the vampire and zombie genres, to a classic slasher/body-count flick. All of the films exhibted a quality of filmmaking that is definitely a cut above the average low-budget fair. Not one film, in my opinion, was plagued with unbelievable actors and horrible plot structures -- something that is all too common in the genre. In fact, the only criticism I could muster about any of these is that most of them are a little too slow-paced for my liking. They all have massive story build-ups that make you wonder how, exactly, there's going to be room for actual scares.

But eventually, each of the films delivers, in its own way.

"Unrest" is the story of a med student who learns that the body her student group is supposed to dissect may actually be cursed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cliched yes, but still entertaining. March 29, 2007
Format:DVD
Since there is a plot description already on the page I'm gonna skip the rehash and get into my thoughts on the movie.

Reincarnation is the 3rd part of the J-Horror Series, which follows Infection and Premonition. Each movie though is standalone with nothing to do with the previous.

But Reincarnation was released as part of the After Dark Horror Fest as one of the 8 films to die for.

Takashi Shimizu is at it again with another ghost movie. While the movie differs from his Ju-on movies they do have a similar tone. For fans of Asian horror you should know what to expect by now.

After seeing the South Korean flick The Red Shoes I decided to take a long break from these movies. While none of them have been terrible movies, my only thought was I already saw this. So after months of avoiding these types of movies I figured it was time to check them out again.

Reincarnation isn't a perfect movie and can be slow at times, but Director Shimizu does a good job at keeping the movie interesting. While not as suspenseful as Ju-on: The Grudge, Shimizu manages to get the best out of every scene, even if it lacks the atmosphere Ju-on had.

That's not to say Reincarnation doesn't have atmosphere, it does, but just plays out as little slower. Bottom line is you aren't getting anything you haven't seen before.

The style is your typical Asian horror movie; but where some of the other films failed with too many clichés, Director Shimizu is able to take all of them and still make an entertaining movie.

There may not be a lot of creativity left, but with the right filmmaker they can still take it and make it something enjoyable. The highlight of the movie is Yuka who plays Nagisa Sugiura.

Format:DVD
Although it is not part of this set, with "The Abandoned" finally being released all of the "8 Films 2 Die 4" from last year's initial After Dark Horrorfest are now out on DVD. I watched all of them in the theater back in November and now I have watched them all again on DVD and figured it was time to reconsider the whole experience. Here are the eight films in the order I first saw them:

"Reincarnation" is a Japanese ghost story from the director of "Ju-On" having to do with a film being made about a sensation mass murder at a hotel that took place a couple of decades earlier. I really like the ending(s) of this film as past and present merge with film and reality. I am so often disappointed by the way most horror films end that the artistry of this one stands out for me (Ranked #1, 4.5 stars).

"Unrest - After Dark Horror Fest" reminds me why I never wanted to go to medical school, and that is without the joys of stripping down to my underwear to jump into a tank of formaldehyde filled with dissected corpses. The back story gets a bit complicated and the plot requires a certain amount of stupidity on behalf of the characters, but a film that swears it has "real dead bodies" will have its moments (Ranked #6, 3.5 stars).

"Dark Ride - After Dark Horror Fest" is the median for the Horrorfest because it is a solid example of a 1970s splatter flick. There are a couple of familiar faces here and it sure looks a lot better than "Fun House," its obvious cinematic ancestor.
