Ja­panese fright mae­stro Hideo Nakata ( Ringu) must be count­ing the cash as his ef­forts get the Hol­ly­wood treat­ment – The Ring was a hit and The Ring 2 made plenty. Over­shad­owed by its big­ger cousins, this ghost tale cer­tainly has its mo­ments. Mother Yoshimi ( Hit­omi Kuroki, pic­tured) gets more than she bar­gained for when she and her young daugh­ter ( Rio Kanno) move into a new apart­ment. A cosy abode at first, the wet­ness which set­tles in is more than your av­er­age case of ris­ing damp. Us­ing Nakata’s “don’t look be­hind you” tech­niques and em­pha­sis­ing the im­plied, this is sure to get you sink­ing in your chair.
