Plot Summary (Can also be found at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/)
This story opens on three school friends at a café. They are playing games using a cell phone to discover who they are in the past live. One of the students keeps feeling that she is being watch.
Then the story moves to a man around mid 30’s drinking something out off a bottle (seems like medicine). He goes to the trash can to throw the empty bottle. At this point we can see that he is all alone at the park. There is a man standing near the trash can. The man started to leave. The mid 30’s man become bewildered because when he looks around, there is no one there. Next the mid 30’s man is in an elevator. Every body else has exit the elevator. (We can see that he is all alone). The mid 30’s man steps back only to bump with a man. (The man he sees at the park). He turns around. Next thing we see, the mid 30’ man is dead.
Then the story moves to a man in a toilet. He turns out to be a truck driver. His face looks pale. He is driving at an empty street that night. Suddenly he sees a man standing in the middle of the street. He stops his truck but still hit the man. He goes down to check out and discover a man under his truck. The wind starts to blow hard. The truck driver looks around and discovers a lot of faces hiding among the bushes. He gets scare and climb onto his truck. He cannot start his truck. He move further back and we can see all the faces is staring at him while he is shouting. (Real spooky).
The plot is simple. A film director is making a new film. It is based on a true story. A college professor tries to kill his family at a hotel. Instead of just killing them (wife, son and daughter), he also kill the hotel staff and other guests. He then killed himself. The tragedy happens in 1970. Nagisa Sugiura (the girl earlier at the café) is the actress who has been role to act in the film. She will play the daughter part. Because the daughter is only six years old at the time of the murdered, the director has changed his script so it suits Sugiura age.
Yayoi Kinoshita is another girl who keeps on seeing the hotel in her dreams. She is a college student.
Yuka Morita is another girl who believes she has been reincarnated. She is studying to be an actress. She went to the same audition with Sugiura. Morita believe she is one of the eleven victims murdered in the hotel.
Sugiura and the production teams are at the hotel. The hotel has been closed after the tragedy. Sugiura keeps having flashback on what have happen on that tragic day. She sees the doctor killed his son and his daughter by stabbing them with a knife. (The sickest thing is that the doctor also recorded what happened using a very old video cam).
Three people have been killed by the ghost of the hotel, the mid 30’s man, the truck driver and Morita. (I believe they are all reincarnation of the victims.)
Yayoi goes to see the lone survivor of the tragedy. The old lady is Dr Omori’s wife. She survives her husband brutality. The old lady showed Yayoi, Dr Omori's (the murder) research book. Dr Omori believed that the human body is only a vessel. He was researching about the origin of human and the place they go after they died. Maybe that is the reason he committed all the murders.
After some times, we will know that Yayoi is the reincarnation of the Dr’s daughter. The film director is the reincarnation of the Dr’s son. All of the victims that have been reincarnated will die and goes back to the hotel.
In the end Sugiura become crazy. She is the reincarnation of Dr Omori. The old lady (Dr Omori’s wife) gives Sugiura a doll and a ball that belongs to her late children. She seems happy that they are now together again.
If you like suspense thriller movie, this is the movie for you. I like it because it is less bloody and less gruesome.
