Last summer, long before my blog crashed, I reviewed another one of Takashi Shimizu's films titled SHOCK LABYRINTH 3D. I had mixed feelings on that particular film because, although it was shot well and had a nice chill to it, the storyline was sketchy and didn't make sense in certain parts. This is important for TORMENTED because the film pulls from SHOCK LABYRINTH in a few different ways.
Let me explain: the characters in TORMENTED go to a movie theater and see SHOCK LABYRINTH in 3D...which is where the rabbit comes from. It literally flies out of the picture and into their world. Sound crazy? Trust me...it is...but it is really cool. This "tie-in" runs throughout the film as well, even taking the characters to the hospital in which the previous movie was set.
But TORMENTED is not a sequel, nor is it technically related to the other film. It just relies on SHOCK LABYRINTH a bit to give it some plot-plugs. I really like how Shimizu was able to pull this off; if it were done any other way, it would have been cheesy.
TORMENTED is shot very well with some eye-popping 3D effects. The acting is really good as well, with a well-rounded cast that gives great performances.Read more ›
Movie. Called "Rabbit Horror" in Japanese is about a girl that was traumatized as a child. It kept my interest the entire movie. Like some Korean movies,..what you see isn't always what is happening.
By the way, the highly acclaimed Christopher Doyle (In the Mood for Love, Hero, Green Tea) is the cinematographer, so that helps too.
Some other recent Japanese horror films that I recommend are "Lesson of the Evil" (2012), "Cult" (2013), "The Complex" (2013), "Kotsutsubo" (2011), all four of the "Kaidan Horror Classics" (2010) films, and all four of Koji Shiraishi's "Senritsu Kaiki File" (2012-2013) films.
