I never knew feet could be scary.

It’s happy happy DEATH!

Despite the amount that I made fun of it, I really enjoyed it quite a bit.

Cinderella / 2006 / Korea
A relevant film despite its Creepy Crawly Craptosis.

A perfect balance of slapstick and seriousness.

Kuchisake-onna (Carved: The Slit Mouthed Woman) / 2007 / Japan
A supernatural hissy fit.

The rebirth of several plot devices.
