'Concrete' (Konkurīto) is also very depressing and disturbing because it's based on the murder of Junko Furuta in the 80s. Any women going to Japan... do not recommend! >.>

You mean the weird 70's horror film? XD

See, I LOVE j-horror, but I couldn't watch Uzumaki to the end. It felt like a nightmare where things don't really make sense. Usually, I wanna wake up from those nightmares, so I pressed stop XD. But yeah, their horror films have different dynamics to western, they are a lot more psychological. I hate when America goes and makes an english version of them and misses out on basically everything that makes the film good. Like my fave, Kairo, had an American version called 'Pulse' that really really sucked, took all the whole meaning of the original away
