In true Japanese horror tradition, this movie spends time in all the wrong places and takes a big dump on the elements that get you hooked initially. Ringu did it. Ju-On did it. Godzilla abides by it. These interminable procedurals are just filler. They often reveal a weak script. Don’t you wish most of the plot would expose a bunch of kids and not cops? Well, wish harder; it ain’t happening!
We do spend time at the coroner’s table and on crime scenes, though, and it gets gory. The practical effects are impeccable, but the digital ones aren’t. The production value is considerable, but it shows it weaknesses when a scene, for instance, involves several characters and extras. This film is some of Japan’s pride, and it’s worth paying attention to.
There’s a strong commentary on social media and viral moments before they even were a thing. Suicide Club foreshadows decades of internet madness that have, on some occasion, led to mass psychosis. It also depicts creepypasta before their started haunting young minds. The film is punctuated with suicide scenes with no tension but huge visual impact that you will not soon forget.

Tales of Terror (www.terror.ca) is an online “gamified” tool designed for horror fans, students, authors and filmmakers. “Gamification” is the adaptation and transformation of tangible concepts into empirical games. Not unlike sport publications, fantasy leagues and role-playing games, the Almanac of Terror mixes and aggregates different statistics, facts, ratings and opinions. Most of the lists included in this book are sorted from best to worst according to their overall score. Some lists are sorted by pertinence. Our classification method uses genres, subgenres, ambiances and antagonists. Our different ratings are as follows: stars, story, creativity, action, quality, gimmick, and rewatchability. We sometimes use the “creepiness” factor when populating certain lists.
