DVD Review: Audition

Happy Halloween! I hope everyone has a fun evening. In true Halloween spirit, I decided to review one of my favorite horror movies; Japanese 'Audition.'
Shigeharo Aoyama (Ryo Ishibashi) is a widower who takes up an offer from a friend to hold "auditions" for a new wife. Of course, the girls auditioning think they're going for a movie role and one girl catches Shigeharo's attention. She's the mysterious Asami. (Eihi Shiina) Too bad Asami is not what she seems.
This is what I tell everyone who's about to watch the film for the first time: Stay with it. It starts off really, really slow. When you get to a scene of our two main characters on the phone, THAT is when the film grabs you and takes you down a path of "ohh what the fuck" for the rest of the film. The last 20 minutes are probably some of the most intense minutes I've ever experienced watching a film. Audtion may get off to a rough start, but the pay off in worth it, and the suspense is killer.
Grade: B
Memorable Quote: "Deeper...deeper.." - Asami


  1. Great review, Brittani. My daughter saw this movie, but I am way to wimpy to sit through it. :)

  2. This movie has been forever burned into my memory. It's a beautiful freak out. Great review
