'Kyofu' starts out as intriguing only to plummet into muddled vagaries
and plot-less shenanigans with an overly ambitious undertone and is
never fully realized. The initial thrust of the movie includes a failed
suicide who ends up a guinea pig captive of her own mother, the
experiments including brain surgery in a quest to alter human
perception and bring the species to a whole new level. A chilling
scenario given that the point of the reference were human experiments
that the Imperial army actually performed on prisoners of war during
In fact, the horrors of such things like Unit 731 are beyond anything
'Kyofu' could ever hope to achieve, testifying that real life can so
often trump fiction. But perhaps it is unfair to expect this movie to
deliver on that account, however, this is a movie spawned from a rich
tradition of scary cinema and it fails to live up to the expectations
within the genre.
Instead of exploring a genuinely scary story the movie loses itself in
meanderings about life after death, virgin pregnancy, a looming bright
light that becomes very fake looking CG created fog to represent the
never quite explained threat, and there is even one of those
infuriating twists that by now are all too tiresome.
'Kyofu' does try to be scary and its vocabulary is for the most part
that of Asian horror with a slow pace, plenty of moody scenery be it a
creepy clinic or the many forest scenes that seem to invoke such
classics as the Tale of Two Sisters. Unfortunately it does not adhere
to the aesthetics by adding conspicuous special effects that become
more laughable as the movie reaches its convoluted climax.
Through most of it there is a feeling of disconnected bits all pieced
together with no actual sense, almost as if scenes could have been
edited in any random order to the same general effect. While not long
it feels like it exhausted itself long before it comes to an actual
conclusion. The characters seem only half present and their very
stilted lines about the afterlife ring hollow.
All and all, it's a shame how such promise was wasted. Here was an
opportunity for dealing with one of the darkest sides of Japan, its
frighteningly high suicide rate and to possibly go into beyond
disturbing human experiments to justify the title of 'Kyofu' (Fear).
Hailing from the writer of the ever so famous Ringu this effort comes
across as a disappointment on all fronts.
