yeah kinda cringe but not so bad. I didn't hate it
for me it’s incredible how a movie can be SO GOOD and so bad at the same time.
if you watch only the first half and turn if off, it’ll be the best horror experience of the year. finishing this left a bad taste in my mouth with so much wasted potential on this ending
the first hour is really really really fucking good tho
it’s unbelievable how Kurosawa is capable of evoking fear through ordinary things - an empty washing machine, water dripping from a sink, fire lighting a cigarette. the way he uses exaggeratedly loud sounds in contrast to silence feels almost like quiet jumpscares. it’s like a suggestion horror - a fear of something that could happen with constant eeriness. it’s so well executed that it effectively scared me throughout every minute of the whole film.
there really is nothing like Cure. and I don’t think…
