Overview

Grudge director Takeshi Shimizu returns to tell this tale of a film crew that descends upon a hotel that was once the scene of a vicious killing spree, only to find that the horrors of the past have a malevolent means of manifesting themselves in the present. Years after a professor slaughtered his wife, his young daughter, and nine hotel guests at the Ono Kanko just north of Tokyo, horror filmmaker Ikuo Matsumara (Kippei Shiina) and his crew prepare to make a movie about the murders. As pre-production on the film gets underway, the lead actress experiences a vivid vision of the murders and is shocked to awaken in the very room where the body of the professor's daughter was discovered. In her vision, the actress watched helplessly as the professor sadistically captures the final moments of his victims on film. When the actress finds the very same camera she saw the professor using in her vision and the cast members begin dying in the same manner as their real-life counterparts, it begins to appear as if the mad professor has returned from beyond the grave to ensure that his dark story never makes it to the silver screen.

    Loved it!

    This is probably the most interesting and unique of the horrorfest in my eyes. I loved the concept of the movie from start to finish. I would suggest this to any horror/suspense movie fan I know. (at least any that can watch a movie in subtitles with out getting hung up on it)

    Fascinating!

    Reincarnation was a great horror film. It's not the kind of film that jumps out and scares you... it's methods are more subtle. It's more unsettling and disturbing. A film crew attempts to make a film about a massacre in the abandoned hotel where the actual killings took place years before. But what happened to the spirits of those people slain? What happened to the spirit of the psychotic killer who murdered his family and other guests and employees of the hotel?
