Japanese horror. When a young actress gets a role in a film based on a series of grisly murders in the 1970s, she begins to experience the killings as if they are happening in front of her. When she discovers an 8mm camera that appears to contain footage of the murders, she decides to develop the film, with terrifying consequences.

Many years ago, a series of terrible murders took place at a particular hotel. These acts of homicide were executed by a professor undertaking an experiment concerning the idea of reincarnation. Some years later, a horror movie director decides to make a film about the massacre. As he starts the production, a young actress hired to take on the leading role becomes haunted by the souls of the murdered victims. Portraying the little girl who was the final victim of the massacre, the actress, Nagisa, starts to believe that she is in some way the reincarnation of this character. That is, until she goes to the place where the young girl was killed and finds someone else there instead...

The thing I like best about Japanese horror is the sense of atmosphere. The use of lingering, slow burning tension when a character approaches a closed door, and we know they shouldn't open it, but we still want them too, regardless! For me, it's everything that horror should be. No gratuitous gore, no shock MTV style montages, just a slow, lingering feeling of dread that grows with intensity from one scene to the next. It also helps that the majority of these films are directed with flair and imagination, whilst, for the most part, offering us intelligent characters and interesting scenarios. With this in mind, Reincarnation (2005) is really one of the best "J-horror" films I've experienced so far, which is probably to be expected given the fact that it comes from the esteemed producer of The Ring (1998) and the highly acclaimed writer/director of The Grudge (2000).

i loved this film. Its sharp cinematography pulls you in from the first scene and its all pervading atmosphere of weirdness keeps you hooked right thru to the climactic twist,which whilst not mind-blowing i didnt see coming as the pressure cooked build up had me suspended in movie watching limbo so much i was caught unawares with my guard down. Surely a definate sign of a good movie. Easily ranks alongside other j-horrors but with the added delight of an overtone of buddhist ponderance and a very, VERY spooky doll. Lights out!! Popcorn ready!! Chew slowly as you may choke.Highly, highly recommended. Thanks.

A very good addition to the J-Horror catalogue. A young actress chosen to portray a victim in a film of an actual massacre of staff and guests at a hotel some years ago becomes convinced she is seeing apparitions of the murdered victims; she especially feels a strong affinity to one victim in particular. The director poses the question could she be the reincarnation of this murder victim?
The film within the film is being made at the same hotel in which the massacre took place. A lot of emphasis is placed on atmosphere building and there are many genuinely creepy images and set pieces within this story. For me Reincarnation had strong elements of both 'The Shining' and The Grudge in both set pieces as well as spookiness. For a lot of the film, whilst enjoying it, I did feel it was re-treading familiar ground in staying true to its asian horror roots but it all built to a very good climatic last third. A very good horror in its own right regardless of cultural associations, J-Horror traditions etc.

Format: DVD
Only in Asia does the practice of horror as a cinematic art form remain alive and well. Reincarnation, as far as I'm concerned, is a simply masterful horror film that succeeds on levels Hollywood forgot many years ago. Pulling double duty as the third (and apparently last) entry in Taka Ichise's J-Horror Theater series and one of the 8 Films to Die For from HorrorFest 2006, Reincarnation is in something of a unique position to offer American and other western audiences a gloriously juicy taste of what they're missing if they have yet to make the jump to Asian horror. Of course, not everyone will agree with my five-star assessment of the film, but I am a little surprised by the range of responses to Reincarnation. Those raised on a steady diet of Hollywood slashers may have trouble adjusting to the slower pace of this film's horror, while some may not like the fact that they have to think a little bit as the film goes along; some will balk at the necessity of reading subtitles; and I concede the fact that the ending of the film can be somewhat confusing - but how can you not be impressed at the atmosphere and nuance intricately woven into this production? During the buildup to the conclusion, you actually have three aspects of the story running in perfect parallel to one another for at least ten minutes before being melded together brilliantly by director Takashi Shimizu. On a more visceral level, the film generates some wonderfully creepy moments - I'll even admit that this film even got one little jump out of me, and that almost never happens to this experienced horror veteran. As far as I'm concerned, Reincarnation is the type of film that can restore your faith in horror films.Read more ›
