Strange and sensuous

  • Aug 23, 2006
'Marebito' is an interesting interesting concept film, original and well-made. A good 90 minutes of entertainment, if you like yours disturbing and gritty.

A documentary filmmaker witnesses a man's fairly horrific suicide and goes searching for the nature of terror in the old tunnels beneath Tokyo. There, along with a strange homeless man and a (possible) ghost, he finds a young girl. She is naked, mute, and chained to a wall. He does what anyone might do in such a situation, right? He frees her, takes her home, and keeps her like a pet. It seems to be working out all right, until he finds that the girl has a strong preference for drinking human blood.

It's a creepy but sometimes sensuous little movie. I liked it mainly because it doesn't try to overplay anything; it sets an effective tone and sticks to it, and never really shows its hand fully. Lots of good mood-setting and a few gory payoff moments as well, an interesting story and good actors. Not bad at all.

What did you think of this review?

Hmmm...sounds like you could do a lot worse than renting this one.

Definitely - it's disturbing and dark, but if you like such things (I do), then it's easily worth a rental.
