Audition

Title: Audition

Genre: Horror/Drama

Plot Summary: Years after his wife dies, Shigeharu Aoyama’s (Ishibashi) son convinces him to try to remarry. With the help of his director friend Yasuhisa Yoshikawa (Kunimura), they hold an audition for Aoyama to find the perfect girl. When he does, however, she turns out to be quite different than she appears.

Review: The reason we watched this movie was because a friend saw it on Bravo’s 100 Scariest Movie Moments, so we decided to give it a shot. Well we were all quite disappointed, and here’s why. The movie is 115 minutes long, the first 100 are boring as can be, followed by an odd and confusing 5 minutes, then there’s a good 5 minute part that is a bit disgusting, and an weird ending that makes no sense. Maybe if this movie had been made to be a little more understandable it would’ve been alright. However, the way it’s set up is just to get you all ready for something that never really happens. I did love the fact that it’s not based on some haunted house, or some spirit trying to get revenge, but I did find this movie just plain boring.
