The Complex

Dir. Hideo Nakata

The Complex sees Hideo Nakata (Ring, Ring 2, Dark Water) return to familiar territory with an intriguingly structured ghost story which tells of a young woman who discovers her apartment building is haunted by former residents.

Unfurling in a slow-burning fashion typical of Nakata’s work, it promises much – an engrossing story, a creepy atmosphere, nightmarish imagery, a plot full of twists and turns and carefully maintained tension – but sadly it never veers too far from a well-trodden path that’s all too familiar to fans of recent Japanese horror cinema.

Head over to Exquisite Terror to read my full review.
