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.

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.

Mixed Feelings
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 ...

I tend to like weird-ass anime that flies under the radar and goes mostly unnoticed by the mainstream, and the trailer for Aragne certainly made it look like it would scratch that itch, but I was quickly proven wrong. While the atmosphere, score and creature design can be striking, everything else is bottom of the barrel quality. Really bad animation and bland character design, which is punctuated by awful directing that utilizes this jerky camera technique that is distracting as hell is bad enough, but the story is what really kills it. Clearly this was written by someone that either thinks they're way smarter and ...
