      Audience Member DOUBLE Review for BOTH Original & Sequel) (aka Shibuya kaidan ) Subtitles & 'More Hair'; 2 short movies (only a tinge over an hour) on 1 disk. The 1st one was 'ok' but not crazy about it. I want to know what's with J-Horror vengeful spirits & There always being HAIR (like the spirit's hair is always soooooo long Its like What was the movie ( I think Sara Michelle Gellar starred in the remake) Ju-on I think. In the first movie a group a collage students are camping & telling scary stories When they get home , They all start to see & experience odd happenings. The locker is an urban legend that you either leave a gift in for someone you like & you give it to them & all will go right However there is also a Curse with the locker. A baby was left inside & now haunts all who use the locker. The sequel leaves off as the original ended. Ayano (the young girl being tudored by one of the last movies victims) is in the hospital with Reika. Ayano comes across the key to the Locker and The Cycle starts again. The cops are still trying to solve the 'Unnatural deaths' of the previous movie, a Doctor is trying to find out answers and poor Ayano in the middle of it all. D Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Sleep with the lights on after watching this Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member This was great this DVD comes with both lockers one and two, and its for a very cheap price. The locker was one of the first asian horror films ive seen when i first started getting into them and it was a great flim. The first one was alright nothing to special but what i really loved was the second movie. One of the nurses really gets it and ohh it was so painful, the story is about a baby born as a result of rape but the baby constently cried and drove the mother crazy, she locked the baby in a locker and threw away the key before dying awhile after. The locker is then known as a place where you can wish and make people love you, however, whoeve looks into the locker will be cured by the baby. The acting to the first movie was ok and the movie was preaty creepy, however the second was far superior. Either way the locker has a somewhat creative story, the little girl wiht long black hair is a common enemy in Asian films but the story of how she came to be has not been done before. I reccomend beacuse for both movies it is very cheap. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Although it relies heavily on an old legend in Tokyo (at least from what I heard), the more you watch it it'll make you realize it develops on typical J-horror cliches seen from films like Ju-On and Ringu. The ending of the second feature is very pondering and will leave you guessing. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member Some good J-horror scares. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Decent. I sat through it hoping that it would get to that point that makes it good. It just kept me going.
