Now THIS is what horror should be
What a ride! Just when I think it can't get worse for the victim, there's more pain just ahead. I'm on the edge of my seat the entire second half of the film looking for the redemption, the escape, the retribution. O M G, does it ever end? Forget zombies, this bitch does it live.
Daddy Dearest is another possible title. I was looking for the incest and the director does a deft job of keeping it 'just right there' without actually becoming... or does he? We see the setup; you can taste the realization. You almost have it in your grasp, but wait...
OK, so the first half is just denouement filler but it gets so much better. This film could have used some American (or maybe Japanese) cinematography and tons more budget yet it still pulls it off. Excellent film work closer to the end setting up the visual struggles that dialog can't.
Overall I would say this film is the little train that could. "I think I can, I think I can..." And then it does. Enjoy.
