I'll grant you that the story doesn't really break new ground (it's the execution and cinematography that make this film work so effectively). Acting on a dare from Yuki, Yoshi and Tetsuya join her in exploring a dark and mysterious tunnel outside town. Some years earlier, a disaster in that tunnel claimed the lives of well over a hundred people. Not surprisingly, stories of a ghost train sprang up over the ensuing years, with a one-handed conductor supposedly looking for new souls to add to his passenger list.
Yuki's experience in the tunnel is disturbing, and, unfortunately, a mad dash to the comfort of daylight doesn't bring closure to her or her friends. A series of unexplainable phone calls and voice mails plague them over the next several days, so much so that they decide they have to go back into the tunnel to find out what is really going on.
152 has an experimental feel to it, primarily due to a plethora of computer-generated visual effects. While many a film has been ruined by too many visual shenanigans, the ones on display here absolutely make the movie, especially when the torches go out. I was tremendously impressed by the creepy atmosphere Knickrehm was able to create here. The kid definitely has potential.
