Horror Case Files Verdict

If you watched Japanese Horror movies, this is nothing new, but the execution wasn’t bad. Even if you didn’t watch a Japanese Horror movie, this would not be the first I would reccomend. It would be Ringu. The parts that weighs this down, it’s very cliche in this genre and doesn’t try anything new break it away from the other movies. You can miss this call.

Random Info I got from this File:
  • If a baby in a jar ends up in your hands, throw it in the air
  • Beware of eye holes
  • If you are cursed, go to a reality show for help
