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.

Mixed Feelings
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 ...

Look, it's plain as day from the trailer that this is hot garbage. I initially dismissed it because of the often shoddy visuals, and it was pretty clear that no matter how audacious the creator might be, there was no reason to believe the script would neatly stitch together what was obviously a low budget b-movie horror film. I should have listened to my instincts...

Despite the visuals being quite subpar overall, many of the images are striking in their own unique way, and there are enough grotesque and bizarre elements that left me intrigued enough to eventually give it a shot. Every once in a ...
