Just bought this movie earlier today and recently finished my second viewing of it. I found it even better the 2nd time. The only thing I don't understand is why every country (or a least a few) do this same "ritual." Is it just a fail-safe to make sure that the "Gods" are pleased in case of a failure of a country(s) (like in the movie)? Or does each country have a separate ritual and set of Gods to please?

It's not completely clear, but I think there is just one set of Gods. The workers mention something about China being able to do it better, so it's possible they all have to please the same Gods.

After multiple viewings you'll catch more and more stuff.

I've only seen it once but I was under the impression that
Spoiler Below
every country did it to increase the chances of success. I mean, if they fail, the gods don't just destroy that country but the world, right?

That's my guess too. But say it took only one country to pull it off. Isn't that a lot of excess causalities from all the other countries? I guess it maybe be "justified" to meet certain goals, but still seems like it could end up to be many more human deaths than necessary.

Another thought I had is the idea behind the image the victims portrayed, such as The Whore, The Jock, The Virgin, etc... I get the concept, but how did that apply to the kids in Japan who were only elementary students? I doubt any of them had accepted their role as a "whore" yet. At least I would hope not.

Japanese horror has its own set of rules, which I assume is why the idea those girls chose as their killer, came in the form of an asian ghost girl.

Now what you should do is find a horror movie that's even better; consider expanding your horizons into other genres (of horror) and decades (the 80s are exceptional). That way you can come back to this forum and apologize for your 3 pages of stupid posts...

Didn't mind it. Don't understand the insane hype though. Best part was Jesse Williams with his shirt off. And when the monsters were unleashed.

'Bout it.
