Film Review: A Slit-Mouthed Woman, aka Carved, Directed by Koji Shiraishi, Japanese, 2007.

Touted to me as a creepy memorialization of the Japanese legend, this film had a magnificent first ten minutes. The rest of the film should have been slit to the cutting room floor.

Despite the gore, think Monty Python Pantomime characters. The middle of this film would be best seen during a nap and the ending is more predictable than professional wrestling.

I don't need to go. I don't need to discuss specifics. I was asleep for most of it and honestly didn't miss a thing.

So much could have been done, but maybe the film maker and his writers fell asleep as well.
