TekeTeke (テケテケ)

It's time for another review! I'm currently in the Idol-Horror spirit right now, and after finding a pretty cool site that hosts subbed J-Horror movies, I decided to watch one of the few listed that I had wanted to see for a while, mostly because it stars Oshima Yuko. I like her acting, so I wanted to see her in the horror.

That, and after researching Japanese Urban Legends way back when, I liked the idea of the movie TekeTeke. So you can kind of guess which one I will be reviewing tonight.

TekeTeke (テケテケ)

Yuko Oshima stars as Kana, a schoolgirl whose normal life is turned upside-down when her best friend is found brutally murdered, having been cut completely in half at the waist. Soon, Kana hears about the urban legend of "Teke Teke," the ghost of a legless woman who was found dismembered years ago and now haunts the railway station. If you see her, in three days you will be killed. In a race against time, Kana must search for the truth in order to escape the horrific fate that awaits her.

Keitai Kareshi (Cell Phone Boyfriend)

Okay so to start of this post; Hi! I am Chiima, a fan of Idols and a self-proclaimed Wota who is also a Media student, though despite that, I don't watch films... or at least not as much as I should. However, I do enjoy watching Japanese films, more so the ones that have Idols in them.

At one point, I wanted to review a movie on my blog, however I felt that at the time, my blog was there for Idol happiness and nothing more, so I never posted that review and eventually deleted it despite how much I enjoyed and wanted to praise the film. A year or more later, still thinking about that deleted post and how I wished I have fully reviewed it and posted the piece, I am here on a different blog, one which I hope to fully dedicate to Japanese movies. More specifically, Japanese horror movies... or whatever the Japanese class as horrors.
 Why horror? Well, it seems to be a popular genre for Idols to go into in terms of movies. That, and I'm not a horror fanatic, but from what I have seen already, some/most of Japanese horrors are pretty tame, and I also wanted to try and review movies because there is a part of me that wants to be a movie critic... doubt I will become one though. Also, reviewing is fun!

Anyway, enough introductions, let's get into the first movie review, and weirdly enough, it's the original to the movie that I had originally reviewed on my other blog...

Keitai Kareshi (携帯彼氏)


High school student Ayumi kills herself and leaves behind a cryptic message that says “will be killed by boyfriend.” Ayumi’s classmates Satomi (Umika Kawashima) and Yuka (Aki Asakura) investigate her suicide and quickly links her death to a cellphone dating simulation game called “Keitai Kareshi.”...
