My absolute favourite horror movie of all time. Some may call it tame but I have a soft spot for haunted house movies. Flawless suspense and tension. Beautifully shot and masterfully executed. It owes a lot to the 1960 British movie " the innocents " but the others is it's its own film. The others is a classic in my mind
I had no prior knowledge of the anime on which this is based. So in that way I was able to look it purely as a film. Yes casting Scarlett in a role originally based on an Asian character may not of been the right pick. HOWEVER I can't say it bothered me all that much at all. I thought she did a great job in a movie that was a lot better than I was lead to believe. Good action, nice story and some good acting. All together I really enjoyed ghost in the shell.
