| Lots of threads
I can't really make a fair comment on this film as I wasn't giving it my full attention, and I gave up on it halfway through.

I liked the way it looked, the mystery, and the exploration of Japanese traditions, history and equivalent of karma. These are all rolled in quite nicely with the horror, in this movie.

Though it seemed like it had a lot of threads, I followed the main ones very easily. There were some threads which I couldn't follow at all, and that's probably why I gave up on it.

Again, I wasn't giving it my full attention, and I'm not a particular fan of horror, so it may not be the film's fault.
