All I can say is that the Japanese must have a different set of values about horror movies than the U.S. I tried to get into the first two in this series and then finally gave up. Very slow and involving more about Japanese superstion and culture than anything else. Add to that the need to reed subtitles for the entire movie, and this really was not a movie I enjoyed. Maybe good for someone interested in Japanese superstition and culture, but as for me, don't waste your time.
