    Horror has a new strain.

    I always wanted to write taglines.

    Jokes aside, Infection looks like a genre clone but turns out to be a dangerous bacteria that grows like sin, turning the people into even more numb creatures followed by a rapid liquidation of film assets. Hahahahaha.

    The film by Masayuki Ochiai (Saimin, 1999') is fun to watch and it has that feeling of old Cronenberg and Carpenter films. Plus the twist in the end is hilariously creepy and…

    Another nonsensical, a little low on the pay-off horror reel from the daddy of 'em all.

    F*ck the script, who cares when you feel like shitting your pants at every gooey turn the movie takes.

    It scares and thus it wins.

    I'm either drunk as hell, or this has the strangest and most awkward pacing in a horror movie ever. Probably both. It's like Riget on acid (or Garth Marenghi's Darkplace with actors they can pay?), with layers upon layers of hallucination, and that's saying something, that alone deserves some credit. Inspiringly fucked up, but the ending is bad because it makes way too much sense. Psychological causality is always such a drag. Well, not really, but sometimes. I have to…

    Not good at all....offers no explainations. Main special effect was green slime everywhere....the most green slime used since the days of The Ghostbusters. Very very disappointing....the cover of the book lied....I want my money back.

    Interesante película que pasó desapercibida en medio del furor por el cine de terror japonés a principios de siglo. Su supuesta premisa de una misteriosa sustancia verde que enloquece a sus víctimas es engañosa porque lo más importante aquí es la atmósfera de un hospital aislado en medio de lo parece un evento apocalíptico, así como su mezcla de gore, surrealismo, juegos estéticos y una capa sobrenatural que se va revelando poco a poco. Esto último quizás es lo único…

    A confusing, muddled horror film about a terrifying night in a Japanese hospital. There's malpractice and a conspiracy to cover it up. There's some kind of disease that seems to be spread psychically and affects the perceptions of anyone who catches it, so that they don't know whether they are hallucinating or not. The problem is that the viewer doesn't know either. There were a couple of points where I thought I had a workable explanation for what was happening,…

    Masayuki Ochiai mezcla con estilo zombis con enfermedades y espíritus en un salteado que uno acaba no teniendo claro que es: los sabores se mezclan creando uno nuevo, independiente de la suma particular de sus partes, pero resulta tan desconcertante que resulta dificil apreciarlo. Es por eso que la película, como curioso divertimento de serie B, cumple con creces en propósitos; como reflexión profunda sobre la enfermedad o un intento de renovar el cine de terror nipón para llevarlo hasta…

    Not a bad movie by any means, but not great. It grew on me as it progressed but I still found the overall pace a little too slow to justify the frustratingly open ended 'pay-off'. All in all, a decidedly mediocre J-Horror that, despite just about keeping me interested until the end, never fully delivers.

    I love this movie! It's creepy and weird and you're like what's going on?! But then you find out and it's awesomely unique!
