Film Review: Tag [ リアル鬼ごっこ | Riaru Onigokko ] + Link to the Full Film (watch it for FREE while the upload is still Public)

I discovered this film from "Just for fun" website called 9GAG (see direct link of the story here). It became a bit of viral due to the gory flick of the trailer. Not sure if I find it odd that people are liking the video. It's sick & disgusting.

Let me know your impression after watching the trailer below. Also, I found a link where you can watch it for free, full in hi-definition.

Tag Riaru Onigokko Film Review

I was expecting a mainstream horror story from this film, but I'm wrong. It's a mixed Horror, Action, Suspense & Comedy film. Some audiences may find the story uninteresting and boring, those who are used to watch mainstream films.

What I like about this film is it gives intellectual meaning to the story. One character talked about the infinite realities whereas for example, you're doing something in your reality while your other self is doing something different in the alternative reality and other realities. The character's name I'm talking about is Sur. She's surreal and loves to do a dirty finger. I find her habit of doing the dirty finger lame and pretentious. Nonetheless, I like her surrealism.

I think, they successfully portray what a nightmare is in this film. The main character keeps running away from her pursuers which made it a true horror story and you can somehow relate if you experienced it too from your dream/nightmare. Added to that is the grim background music while the main character is running away from her pursuers. The music sounds like the opening theme of The Walking Dead.

Moreover, I like the ecchiness too. I think It's kind of tradition that they put something ecchi in Japanese entertainment material. Mostly, you'll find ecchi material in Japanese anime.

Lastly, my rating for this film is: 6.0 / 10.0
