    I had bought Spook Warfare (the first one) a long time ago and really enjoyed it on the first run-through. After viewing it two more times though, it reduced my peasurable expereince drastically. After hearing of Takashi Miike's remake though, I was kicking myself in the balls for selling it though. Oh well, a friend of mine has all three (she said she hasn't watched any of them yet though) so I'll still be able to watch them and compare it to Takashi's version.

    Well that makes me want to eat a quarter of shrooms and see it in theatres. Thanks, Ass!

    Too bad I'll have to wait for a DVD, available in 3 years.

    I just watched all three of these not too long ago, and while Spook Warfare was a little too goofy for my tastes the sequels were very entertaining. The sequels also got better as they went along, making the plots creepier and creepier. The odd thing is though with Spook being the most kiddie oriented it's also the bloodiest. The other two don't have any blood in them at all and even have a smaller death count I think.

    I watched this last night (although the screener I got had no subtitles, so I didn't pick up everything they were saying), and it's a lot of fun. Goofy in spots, and Chiaki Kuriyama is still a hottie.

    There will be some theatrical showings over the summer, and a R1 DVD by fall.
