You know that thing that Japan generally thinks of LGBT? You know, where being gay is a phase that teens go through and that once they are adults they outgrow? Where it’s okay to be gay, as long as you are still young? Well, this is what this movie is about, that is, the  main message it seems to send! That is one of the only two things that I don’t like about this movie! This ‘gay is only a phase’ thing really rubbed me the wrong way! Worse still they even turned it into a curse. A curse that affects only girls because there are no gay men in Japan apparently, oops, I meant gay boys since grown-ups can’t be gay having outgrown such nonsense. I am totally tasting metal in my mouth right now!

The other is that they tried so hard to be intelligent by mixing in human elements into what is supposed to be a supernatural/horror movie! If any one of you watched those promotional videos I posted a while back while this movie was in cinemas, Ayami was saying something about her character Aya being the next Sadako which really brought my hopes up even higher about this movie seeing as I am a great horror fan. So you can imagine my disappointment when in the movie, apparently the Aya ghost was not the one causing all the deaths but rather humans! Okay, that really pissed me off! You can’t compete with Sadako, Kuchisake Onna or any other legendary villains like that, nope! If they had made Ghost Aya the villain that she was supposed to be instead of trying to be wise bums, this would have been a 5 star horror and the birth of the next Gen villain but alas. Seriously, Michi did not even get to take a photo, not a single photo, with that famous camera of the Fatal Frame series we know and love! Not one!!! All the rage!

Other than those two facts, this movie was really great. Which isn’t saying much seeing as those two points I just touched upon are what make this movie’s gears move! You see, the main thread in this movie is that there is a curse that breaks lose when a girl kisses the photo of the girl she likes. Apparently this has been going on for generations in this school (There is a whole gallery of lovers from years past) and up until the current head sister’s school days, the curse was un-stoppable as in every graduating class there was always a couple the loved each other so much that instead of growing up and having to be separated, they would commit suicide in order to freeze their time together forever. The head sister was one of these girls and was in love too once. But when they went to commit suicide together with the girl she loved, the head nun cheated and did not fall with her lover. That apparently broke the curse!

But with Aya’s arrival, the curse began anew. Girls would fall for her to the point of them breaking out the curse all over again by kissing her photo, which we actually find out wasn’t her photo but more on that later. Aya who is also being affected by the curse by being bombarded with weird visions, decides to lock herself in her room for the whole last term. Also because she couldn’t handle the way her fellow students looked at her wherever she would go and as she said, did not understand the feeling of a girl loving another girl (to which Michi replies that she doesn’t even understand the feeling of loving a boy. I gave her 10 points for that BTW!).

And so the movie opens around this time, only a few days left to go before graduation, Aya is still locked up in her room, the girls are going crazy without their Aya, the curse is spreading and getting stronger. And in the process bodies begin to fall like sheep.

AKA ~ The World Of Kanako

First of all, I pity those who are going into this movie without experience because their minds are gonna come away totally scathed! This is one of those movies that will change your world, or the way you look at the world and what you think you know about it! Thankfully, I like to think of myself as one of the veterans and this was just a walk in the park for me. That experience should be a good thing, and it is but it is also a bad thing!

Bad because with my experience with these kinds of movies, I found myself totally under-whelmed by it! It felt to me like they were just trying too hard, and totally failing. No, fail is a harsh way to look at it because that logic only applies to those with experience with movies like these. To others, this might as well be a masterpiece. Well, that is after they have finally come to terms with the movie!

To those who need spoon-feeding, this movie is very, VERY disturbing! Komatsu Nana (yes, that’s her name! I know which Komatsu Nana you are thinking of, in fact even google thinks of that same Komatsu Nana when you search with it but it is not NANA’s Komatsu Nana!) was magnificent in her role as Kanako! Even as her story was told via flashbacks through her father’s investigations, Nana totally stole the whole show! She has to have been paid billions for this role because if she wasn’t, Japan I am judging you! Seriously, Nana was amazing in this movie! She did stuff that would A-List any actor/actress that is brave enough to actually go through with what she had to do for her scenes! I don’t want to give anything away in case you want to watch it (well other than the yuri parts because that’s the point for this post) but I will just warn you by quoting myself once again…THIS MOVIE IS DISTURBING!

With that out of the way, let’s get to the interesting parts, starting with me shouting…

MORIKAWA AOI YOU LIAR!

Yeah, that just happened! Sadako just got P’OWN’D by the new kawaii ghost on the block – Aya!

Any way this is during yet another promotion of Aoi and Ayami’s new horror movie based on the Project Zero/Fatal Frame games. The event took place in Shibuya, right under the 109 building. Actually these videos, are the source of that question I mentioned in the earlier post about what it felt like kissing another girl.

And well, none other than Sadako, voted current most scary ghost in Japan, made her surprise guest appearance, which I was really hoping to happen the way Ayami mentioned her almost in every interview. Well, Sadako showed up, and in style too but there was something off about her. She looked really small which kind of disappointed me because  I was expecting the real Sadako to show up. To those who don’t know, the real (current) Sadako is the very one and only Hashimoto Ai!

Sadly this was no Ai. It’s probably another Junior Idol behind the mask hair. Aoi couldn’t resist making fun of her of course, calling her cute due to her pint size. I was laughing when Sadako whipped around at that. I was expecting a showdown of curses to happen when Aya has to come to the rescue of her love.

Any way moving on Sadako being Aya’s Senpai (in that Sadako was done by Kadokawa too) came over to congratulate Aya on her movie, a movie she apparently watched and thought it very scary. In fact she said that she found Aya scarier than herself.

Now I really want to see this movie!

And on top of that, she was so impressed that she passed on the title of scariest girl to Aya. After shaking hands with Aya (In a really creepy way) she was asked to say something to Aya. She leaned in to whisper (That’s how she talks) the words into her ear but instead ended up giving Aya a hug instead. A hug which she followed up on with a kiss!

I guess she couldn’t resist the Aya curse. I mean she had to know from watching the movie that anyone that kissed ended up dead but she did it anyway. Well, the paramedic had to come in and stretcher her away…

Heh

But this is Sadako we are talking about here so she of course was up and about and back for more (Having fallen in lust with Aya cause no one can resist the Aya curse, it is strong!) and the three ended up pausing for a three-shot.

Now while that is all and good, I can’t not talk about Ayami and Aoi to. Seriously these two have got to be separated pronto or they might end up getting married and having babies soon. That eye sex and side glances and shy smiles are getting out of control! Then the interviewer went on to praise Ayami’s Aya’s beauty calling her a beauty within the beauty (She is real Bijin isn’t she tho?). Aoi completely agreed 100% making poor Ayami so embarrassed. Seriously these two, I can’t wait to watch their chemistry translated on screen!

Then of course there is the next Project Zero/Fatal Frame game coming out the day after release day. Another trailer is up and about on YouTube and we get some new scenes from that too. I really hope they release an EN version because I will so buy a WiiU just to play this game! But since that is least likely to happen any time soon, I will be raiding YouTube for playthroughs. Please don’t let me down YT.

Any way, hit the jump for more caps, the game trailer and this interview vids…In the meantime, I am off to start reading Sarah Waters’ new monster book – The Paying Guests, that just came out this Tuesday. Fingersmith has yet to be de-throned as my favourite read evar! And her other books follow it (except that one not gay one that shan’t be named)

Mabbellas!

Awwyeaaaah, I am so into this movie it’s almost laughable! I can’t help always raiding the internets for more ‘Zero’ news these days. I am just so taken with Aoi and Ayami-chan right now! This time though, I found more than what I was expecting as it turns out that there is another Project Zero/fatal Frame game coming out in the same month as the movie which is this month! In fact the two releases are only like, a day apart, no scratch that, only hours apart with the movie coming out on the 26th as we know, and the game (Wii) following it just the next day on the 27th!

MADNESS!!

I ask once again, dear Lord, why wasn’t I born Japanese!?!! Surely I must have displayed a great sense of wanting to be born re-born there, so why?! Y U No…

Any way…

Now just to be clear, the news that we were getting this movie was already enough for me! I just had that feeling. With that cast I just knew I was going to be all over this like a bag of candy! I was expecting girls doing girlie things but not this…

The TV Spot trailers are hitting YT right now and there is this one that just made me go absolutely nutters! I mean A KISS?!!! The Gay is strong with 2014 I tell ya! And this right after a certain Reader posted a an image of two girls they thought were Aoi and Ayami kissing (They were different people, sadly) but it is like fate is on our side! No, not fate, Japan! it’s like they said, why dig up fake people when you can have the real deal doing it? And I am like….Japan, pls marry me! My excitement factor for this movie just surpassed 100%! More in the 000s now actually! Any way, jump ahead for the teaser in question.

Too bad it is just that, a teaser. We will have to wait for the BDs to see their lips touching!  Sigh TIME, Y U have to be so cruel! Give us a hint on how to speed you up, won’t you!Some of us prefer to live in the future than the now!

GAEY!

If there were any doubts at all about the gayness of this take on the popular horror game Project Zero/Fatal Frame, then this new (and longer) trailer totally clears the waters for you! It doesn’t get any gayer than red threads of destiny which connect people in two very different world, and those can’t came any different than the world of the living and the dead! And this all supposedly being based off the first game which, as far as I know wasn’t gay in the least! Seriously, now I am dying to know what they would with the Crimson Butterfly game!

We get a clear look on our main girls as do we a few other characters and we also get a closer tease at the story. Seems like Aya (our beloved ghost) might actually not be the bad ghost that everyone talks about and in fact there are two different peo…er…ghosts that look alike. Hmmm, are they trying to mix in the elements from Crimson Butterfly in this? And by that I mean the twins card, though it doesn’t seem like they are related but Aya might just have the wrong memories and it’s some kind of twist.

Other than that though, Aya has to be like the a gay goddess or something because everyone is super gay for her, and all this when she is d.e.a.d! There were not one, not two, but three girls kissing Aya’s photo in this latest trailer and that includes our main girl Michi (Aoi). What was even more questionable was that she was kissing it right in front of Aya! Why kiss the photo when the actual person is there?! Okay I mean she is a ghost but still, air kiss her or something! That kissing her photo when she is watching is super creepy and I don’t know even why!

I am really looking forward to this now! Bodies are of course still dropping like sheep and Aya is still doing the Jesus thing and I think I spotted a Ring scene in there so of course this is all horror first and gay next! Totally what the Doctor ordered!

Anyway I have bored you enough, hit the jump to watch it on YT…

I’ve been waiting so long for you

And there are still those who doubt that God exists! I pity thee! If you believe you never go wrong! It was only a few days back that I made a post about this and wished for a trailer and only just a few days later the trailer hits! That’s it, I am going out to play lotto right after posting this! I am very lucky!

It’s a really short trailer, really, more like a teaser of 36min but I am already sold on buying this on Bluray! I mean I was already sold but still, from what I have seen so far nothing can stop me from adding this to my collection!

Like, look at all those bodies falling left and right?! I don’t think I’ve seen so many bodies since Battle Royal! That’s right, it’s not only Hori Miona that’s into gore! And is walking on water like the she is a sex-changed Jesus?! I didn’t think ghosts could walk on water! I mean not even Sadako could do it and her ghost was all about water!

Aoi and Ayami are looking really good so far and that line at the end of teaser got me good! I have very high hopes for this movie! Seriously 2014 is turning out to be one surprise of a year! I most certainly wasn’t expecting as much as this and we are only half way through the year!

Any way, as you see the movie will hit cinemas in September so sadly it will have to be next year before we get to enjoy it, we poor gaijin. Any way hit the jump for the teaser trailer…
