So you think you've seen a scary movie...,
This review is from: Audition [DVD]  (DVD)
From begining to end this is not an "enjoyable" experience. However, this is one of the most important films ever in the cinema let alone the horror genre. This film provides the most unsettling journey through narrative form, & i felt abused after seeing it.
Takashi Miike is a genius, giving the viewer the sense of comfort throughout the most part of the film, & if anything teaches you to never become content with subject matter. I will not say anything about the plot - otherwise there is no point in reading this and then watching the film. I have seen many films in my young days, from all around the world, and this is one of the best.
A note:- I saw this after hearing it was a very good horror, and then thought that I was mistaken after an hour of watching. For the next hour I found my self feeling physically sick.
So good it scares me. Hail the man who knows true horror.
