Life could be better for shy, anxious university student Rin. The apartment she has rented is hardly the sunny palace the rental listings suggested. The housing complex is rundown, grim and haunted by troubled souls lurking in dark corners. Ghastly crimes are occurring in the vicinity. And a grinning stranger makes his unsettling presence known.

Beyond all this, Rin is coming to realize that something even more sinister is manifesting itself, something at the cursed crossroads of mythology, monstrosity and medical science. Determined to find out more, Rin visits the library, where she meets a sympathetic young staffer. But what she learns does not begin to put her mind at ease.

Ok im never wrote an anime review+english isn't my main language so plese bear with me ^^;

I quite enjoyed the movie' story except the last 20~ minutes and it's ending.
I'll be totally honest.I didnt understood the ending....I don't know if it was just me but my friend didn't either.

For it's animation,I personally can still enjoy an animation with low frames which this movie had.But that was when the animation were drawn...Because that movie have randoms moment where 3d models are used which I think is fine if done well.But it was done really awkwardly in my opinion.
The drawn animations were very low frames while the read more

First review, lets go. Found this movie clicking "random" on a certain anime website. looked it up and found basically NOTHING. No video reviews/explanations/theories or anything of the sort. The only thing i really found was its horrible Mal score. But i decided to watch it anyway and im glad i did. Ill try to review as spoiler free as possible.

The story was amazing. It felt very original and fully kept my interest all the way through the movie. Even from the very first scene i felt drawn in to its creepy/grotesque atmosphere. However i do have mixed feelings about the ending. Without saying read more

Aragne no Mushikago is weird movie which I watched because the story seems intreasting even though it's score is low and what I got is both bad and good.Let's start the review spoiler free.Before I start with the story I have to devide the movie into two parts you will understand why.The first half is really intreasting and good aside from the mystery which is intresting and it makes you to know what happen they used perfectly the horror and the psychological element they knew where and how to use them and as a plot in general was very good to the point that it read more

I went into this totally blind, so I didn't really know what to expect. It was a rather odd film. It's done in CG, which I know can be contentious for many anime fans. In this case it was very much a mixed bag. Some scenes had pretty good cinematography, and the character designs are fairly strong in my opinion. However, there are quite a few scenes were the character movements look stiff and awkward, which dragged down the overall experience. The protagonists hair barely moves, which is distracting in many scenes.

The mystery aspect of this movie is interesting in the earlier parts read more
