But I was more entertained than I expected to be, even despite the crassness and the obvious broken record plot. It definitely kept me occupied for an hour and a half, which was a lot more than I expected.

It showed up on a list that i a using for horror movies but there is nothing that really screams scary for me here. 2 roommates that hate each other fight for 70 min. Not just fight but they literally beat the living crap out of each other with various items thorough out the house. There was a Chainsaw and i do like seeing those used in "Scary" films. I really didn't like the movie though, it is pretty cool that they filmed the whole thing in an apartment. It wasn't enough, there needed to be more and i think that the back story was pretty weak. Fancy camera work and blood are not enough to elevate this movie up the Scareometer. 3.5/10 Find another J-Horror movie Sid
