    I have to admit, while I was let a little bit down by the actual "scares", the intangibles that lie beyond the report are downright fucking oppressive. Noroi almost doubles as an apocalypse movie by the epilogue. Kagutaba is one of the most effective baddies in a horror movie and I'm still not even remotely sure what its deal is? Nuts.

    Not to make it a contest, but I still think Blair Witch is the queen of found footage -…

    It's honestly generous of Obayashi to have made a film with such calamitous themes (nuclear war and the multigenerational damage it wrought) so thrilling and fun. By cognitively signaling his joy of creativity, Obayashi's goal to pay tribute to his pre-war friends who died stands as something inextricably linked to every frame of this movie.

    Needless to say, a very VERY great rewatch. The movie is still a waking helldream, and I would love to get drunk and yell about every stupid thing I notice.
