Occult ★★★½

Not quite as satisfying as 'Noroi', but Shiraishi again shows his talent for the 'mockumentary' with convincing dialogue and performances, and intriguing plot. Fellow J-horror director Kiyoshi Kurosawa makes an appearance (as with Takashi Shimizu's 'Reincarnation'), there's some experimental industrial music that effectively adds to the creepiness, and the ending is rather cool.
