People turn into snails and popular schoolgirls eventually grow gravity-defying swirled hair. His new woman discovers this truth, the two fight, and the samurai decides to return to his original love. You'll never look at the internet the same again. The nightmarish atmosphere that follows her wherever she goes, her slowly warping and changing appearance, and her grotesque expressions make her a Japanese horror villain for the ages. Those who have seen the film are probably already cringing in discomfort.
This cyberpunk horror film was directed by Shinya Tsukamoto and has become a low-budget horror cult classic. When Ayaka leaves the vehicle to ask for Hideki's help in fixing their child's seatbelt, the car is pummelled by a truck, killing their daughter.
Luckily, the remake maintained Shimizu's taste in directing and was a major success. Kairo did well upon its release, received positive critical reviews, and has since gained cult status. The film was actually the third installment of the Ju-on series but was the first to be theatrically released. The film was remade for Western audiences in She cannot eat, drink, or speak, but one thing is for certain-- whatever she is, she wants blood.
