The membrane between the natural and supernatural worlds grows thin in the Japanese phantasm Onmyoji II. A solar eclipse bodes ill, and sure enough a demon stalks the streets, eating different body parts from its victims. It falls to Seimei (Mansai Nomura), a powerful and gender-ambiguous onmyoji (a magician or sorcerer), to exorcise the demon. Drawn into the plot are a tomboy princess who sleepwalks, a handsome young lord in love with her, a possessed musician with a strange mark on his arm, a talking skull, and much more. Watching Onmyoji II isn't so much like watching a sequel, it's like being dropped into the middle of Twin Peaks-like series, full of past relationships that gradually unfold amidst malevolent magic and bloody doings. Visually lush (the special effects are cheap but evocative), just a little campy, and all-around entertaining. --Bret Fetzer

That said it was really a great movie. The actors and actresses where well chosen. And the story was not lacking. I am a big fan of Japanese, Korean, Chinese, and Taiwanese movies and shows. So I know a bit about they're culture, which helps but is not necessary to enjoy this movie. I am egerly waiting to see if the make another one!!
