The last ten minutes of this film alone are worth the price of the rental. For me, the most effective horror movies are the surreal; the ones where you're not quite sure what's going on and all the really terrible stuff is going on in your head after the movie is over. That's why I'm the one person in this world who loved Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me so much.

There isn't any well-known talent in this movie. There's Naomi Watts, who's working a serious combination of the Nicole Kidman ice-princess act and the Meg Ryan forehead wrinkle. She's okay. Daveigh Chase, who did the voice of Lilo in Lilo and Stitch, plays a demon child.

I have a feeling the Japanese version of this film is even creepier. I rented it from Netflix; I'll let you know. It does help that this version takes place in Seattle. The cold-looking, rainy scenery adds a nice touch.
