Whew…it’s gonna be a busy busy social month for me this April and coming May. Friend’s wedding, said friend’s hen party, various dates with different people, Book Exchange @ The National Library at Bugis, FREE Comic Day at Rochor Centre etc. Utterly jam-packed with stuff to do, places to go and people to see. Not that I’m complaining of course. Haha.
Went to watch Ju-on: White Ghost and Black Ghost with my bf last Tuesday @ Cineleisure, Orchard. It was a movie collection of 2 stories with the common theme of revenge.
The first movie begins with a man hanging in his last throes of life. A cassette tape recorder lies below him beside a bag and we are soon treated to the creepy sight of long (for once, I’ll like to see a short-haired ghost) hair spilling out of the bag. The story then brings the viewer back in time where we find out how and why the murder of an entire family took place. Throughout this story, we see a scary white female figure stalking anyone and everyone who was somehow linked to the murdered family. At first I thought the ghost was the little girl (whose head got lopped off by her crazy and suspiciously pervert uncle), then I discovered…that it was actually the little girl’s senile granny who wanted to play ball. =.= [highlight missing part to see spoiler]
The second story is about a twin that had been absorbed by her own twin during the mother’s pregnancy. The absorbed twin then seeks revenge on everyone who “refused” to give her a chance at life. A bit illogical. =x
Anyways…during the movie…everyone was so tensed up that they screamed at almost every scary scene and not so scary ones. Case in point: when a character was merely taking a deep breath in surprise, a girl screamed at the top of her lungs, presumably to prepare for the “scare” ahead. =x
Like seriously…if you’re so scared…DON’T WATCH SCARY MOVIES! =x Hehehehe.
Well, the movie was quite ok and quite unintentionally funny at times but it did good in building suspense and that scary sound the Ju-on ghosts seem to enjoy making. =x
