Editorial Reviews

Legend holds that 30 years ago, a suburban town was terrorized by the spirit of a woman whose beautiful face had been grotesquely disfigured by a jealous husband. Roaming the streets wearing a long coat and surgical mask, the spirit would approach her young victims and, while removing the mask, ask if she was pretty. The victim’s response would almost always lead to their violent death. Now, one by one, children are disappearing again. As teachers and officials desperately begin to investigate, a panic begins to build as the woman’s spirit returns for some unfinished business and the town's dark secrets are exposed.

By Zack Davisson HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on December 4, 2007
Format: DVD
The Kuchisake-onna, known in English as the Slit-mouthed woman, is a popular bogeyman and urban legend in Japan. Although an ancient legend, she still holds a powerful sway on the Japanese psyche, and as recent as 2004 there have been sightings reported in newspapers, and a mild panic back in 1980's had people running scared from a Kuchisake-onna who had been supposedly hunting down children. "Carved" (Japanese title "Kuchisake-onna") is the latest film to play on the fears of Japan, and manifest this folkloric monster onto the screen.

Almost a straight-forward monster/slasher movie, "Carved" does a good job updating the kuchisake-onna, making the most of her frightening appearance and equipping her with a signature weapon, a giant pair of scissors that make her even more fearsome. The plot holds along with the established legend, with the whisper of the appearance of a Kuchisake-onna spreading fear amongst the school children yet being dismissed by unbelieving adults. Some of the braver children try to catch a glimpse of her, with deadly results, and the plot thickens and the bodies pile up. Some of the story is unexplained, because every Japanese person would be aware of the legend and not need it pointed out to them, and this might be a little confusing, but these instances are rare.

Director Kôji Shiraishi has put out a number of B-ranked horror flicks, like "Ju-rei" and "Noroi", without ever scoring a really big hit. His films do the job on a dark cold night of sending some chills up your spine, but no one should expect any sort of masterpiece. With that in mind, I really enjoyed "Carved", more than I thought I was going to, and feel that he upped the ante over his previous films.

A very good movie. I believe what is written as a description on the back is to throw you off a bit so I don't want to give too much except the slit-mouthed woman is very horrible in more ways than one. The dvd comes in English subtitles but that doesn't bother me and it was totally worth getting.

Could have been better if the villain had a weakness. This one is just invincible and all you can do is die. Then why bother fighting or even filming it? I can stand the villain winning but winning because the director/producer/writer made you invincible is just lazy.

One of my favorite Asian horrors and my favorite urban legand. I didn't know what to expect when I ordered it but this movie had a good twist and I loved the behind the scenes look at the actors. Perfect for a horror marathon or just a cozy rainy night.

The acting is above-average for Jhorror. The child stars are cute but not
annoying while the adults are portrayed realistically. It was thrilling
enough to keep me glued to the screen for 1.5 hrs but not impressive enough
to watch twice. UPDATE: The sequel is a far superior (deeper) film.

Why surprisingly? Because I don't scare easily. I love horror and even if I don't get scared I'll still enjoy the movie/game/book/whatever thoroughly. However, back in like 6th grade, I watched this on Netflix streaming and I was actually terrified. This movie still sends chills up my spine even thinking about it. For any horror fan, this is definetly worth checking out. Especially any who love movies about popular urban legends and folklore

I enjoyed this movie. The movie was solidly acted by everyone involved, even the children.

The film has a "calm before the storm" feel about it. The skies are mostly gray. The colors are washed out.

There isn't much gore for the type of movie this could have been. It plays it safe. mostly, with either implied violence or quick shots.

I would have given it another star had the end been unpredictable.

I have collected a good assortment of Japanese horror and i must say that this movie was really really good. I enjoy this style of film where they don't really have a happy ending and there is no token male/female who make it out alive and in love... This is good old-fashioned boogeyman greatness. An unsettling horror that grabs you with little gore and keeps your attention without sex. I love those as well, but this gets hold of you without it and gives you that nice Fulci feeling at the end where you made it out and all seems set straight, but NO you are somehow scarred by the experience and there is no hot chick or guy to kiss, no smiles or holding hands, but a true feeling of dread left from a traumatic encounter. I would say that if they ever made this on Blu-ray i'd pre-order it.
