The Complex
29 members

Nursing student Asuka has just moved into an apartment complex with her parents and younger brother. On the first night in her new room, she is awoken by a strange scratching sound coming from the apartment of her neighbor, a reclusive old man who has refused all attempts at communication. Concerned over his well being, Asuka enters his home only to find him dead from malnutrition. Worse, it looks as if he had been trying to claw his way into her room. Asuka learns that there have been a number of strange deaths in the complex over the years from Shinobu, the handyman cleaning up the old man’s apartment. Even the girls at school whisper rumors of it being haunted.

Très bon film, on retrouve içi les anciennes croyances japonaise sur les revenants, et le thème des syndromes post traumatique. On n'est pas dans le genre sanglant, c'est stressant et émouvant, le film expose un climat oppressant où le spectateur ne sait plus que croire. Les décors sont minimalistes mais efficaces, les acteurs sont bon et portent bien leur rôle, la mise en scène est fine, et la réal est propre. Ce film ne plaira pas à tous le monde car il n'y a pas d'action, on n'est pas dans l'horreur mais plutôt dans l'émotion.
