Easily on par with Ringu and The Shutter
First of all i am not Japanese and i watched this movie recently with English subtitles. Over the years i have watched horror movies the The Ring and shutter and this movie isn't a rehash of the stuff released earlier. It tells the story of an urban legend and a ghoul that only has the upper part of its body and moves fast on its arms. Teke Teke finally offers up something beyond the long haired girl that seems to take up the spot of every ghost in Asian cinema. Not only is the long hair gone but so are the legs as Teke Teke is an urban legend of a ghost who is missing her legs. In the film they say that if you cross the train tracks after dark you'll hear Teke Teke behind you. If you turn around she'll slice you neatly in half and even if you manage to escape you'll still die 3 days later. And so goes Teke Teke.
The visual imagery here is genuinely creepy and although it takes a familiar Asian horror setting and premise,it still manages to give it a new dose of horror by combining elements of a creature flick. It is not so often we see a movie with a fast moving ghost but still retain the same slow brooding tense atmosphere that we all crave. However the film is not without its flaws. Although the horror scenes were exceptionally filmed, the other scenes depicting the every day scenarios could have been better in terms of cinematographer. It gives the visual sense of amateur cinematography and live sound being combined in the film.
Other than having some minor flaws,It's not the greatest horror work around but it is at least trying to offer something different. With some much needed gore added and a nicely done ghost, the movie manages to beat out a lot of the other offerings. the film is worth watching and be sure not to miss it as u will enjoy this one in a dark room .
