It sure been awhile since I’ve watched a Japanese movie. I have finally watched one of my most anticipated j-movie, GOTH. Ever since I knew Hongo Kanata is starring in this movie I went off and read the manga. This type of murder and mystery is really not my type but I just watch it for the sake of Hongo.
GOTH is about two high school teenagers with an unhealthy appetite for the macabre, they’ve discover a serial murder’s notebook and started to find out where the next dead body will be ensuring that they are the first to see it.
Not comparing to the manga or novel, I thought the movie was pretty interesting at least I haven’t seen any movies which revolves about macabre. Although I don’t quite fully understands the whole story of Morino and her twins sister but the whole death bodies thing was portrayed very pretty in the movie. The hand cutting and bleeding looks pretty realistic to me as well.
The last scene where Kamiyama was at the cafe and when the cafe owner opened the door where all the papers started flying everywhere was very nicely filmed. I’m glad that they didn’t one of the scene I saw in the manga because it was pretty disgusting.
If I would rate this movie I would give it a 7/10.
