So if ANYONE could make an awesome horror movie, it would be the director of Dark Water and The Ring, surely… right?
Nothing like starting a movie review with a bit of sarcasm right? But surely the appeal of this movie is that fact that one of the greatest J-horror directors of all time is taking on the concept of the haunted Japanese house.
Or, as they’re known: Stigmatized Properties. Which co-incidentally is the name of this movie.
What’s this movie about?
Yamame and Nakai are a comedy duo called Jonathans, but their latest show is a failure, eliciting a chuckle from only one audience member, a fangirl named Kosaka.
When Nakai wants to split up the duo to pursue a TV writing career, Yamame is left with nothing until the TV station director decides, on the spot, he wants Yamame to spend some time in a haunted apartment and document the results.
With the help of Nakai and Kosaka, who coincidentally gets a job at the same TV station at the same time as a make-up assistant, he encounters and documents a spirit, and the show is an instant success.
This leads him to renting out more haunted apartments, but it comes at a cost. An evil spirit has latched onto him, having an effect on his physical and mental health.
