talk_to_the_dead_mb03
This low budget Japanese horror flick from The Ring and The Grudge producer Ichise Takashige is the story of Yuri, who is forced to work as a call girl to support herself and her younger brother, after her wayward mother runs off with a new man. Yuri’s brother accidentally drowns in the bathtub, and racked with guilt, Yuri turns to a mysterious smartphone app, which apparently can be used to communicate with the dead.

As I saw this film at HK Filmart, where it was being exhibited solely for sales purposes, market rules forbid me from passing judgment, but those familiar with Japanese horror should have a strong indication of what to expect.
