Default Exte

Ekusute (2007) aka Exte aka Extensions



By director Sion Sono (Kaze)

A rather surreal revenge flick that has it's roots in the Japanese long haired ghost girl mythos, but done in a very different way.

The movie stars Chiaki Kuriyama (Battle Royale, Kill Bill), and follows the life of a happy girl who works as a hairdresser with her whole life ahead of her. She struggles with her half sister's abused daughter, and cursed hair extensions... the usual teenager's life.

The movie is really creepy, play it loud, the soundtrack is excellent, the dialog is interesting, and the directing is also quite good.

This is one of those movies that while not great, is so unique that I am so happy with them after all the crap that comes out of Hollywood that pushes no boundaries at all. This movie has it in spades.

From watching the trailer the movie look definitly worth watching. How could I miss out on a performance by Chiaki Kuriya? *asian crush alert* I don't understand why Asians are so fixed on using hair in their movies though.

Long beautiful black hair is elegant and graceful and iconic in Japan, so what better horror than to have that which you covet turn against you?

Glad to see someone mention this one. I thought it sounded interesting, but wanted to read some reviews first. If Blockbuster has it, I'll rent it this wkend.

Ya, I was pleasantly surprised. It got mediocre reviews from IMDbers, but thought it was pretty good.

The acting, directing, dialog, all are very cool and atmospheric. The tension is sweet, it was a bit slow at times, but it delivers with some thoughtful storytelling.

I'd give it a 7.5-8/10

This is on my list to watch today, sometime around 5am, when I get off of work. I've seen some screenshots on a PT site - it looks way cool. Killa weave, man!

I know I made this thread awhile ago, so I call shenanigans. Also, although sporadically entertaining, I felt like the film and concept would have been vastly more entertaining had it been a concious parody of modern Asian horror cinema.

Agreed, agreed. I haven't finished the movie just yet(30 min left) and know it's silly to comment on anything I haven't watched to completion... but from what I've seen so far - the serious approach is fail. C'mon! - it's about killer hair extensions.Yeah, my friend and I kinda just dozed off. I can see this being a nasty film without CGI, for something done by hand would probably be more disturbing. I mean 'cause it is kinda gross to have all that hair consuming your body, but at the same time the CG steals from that.

The bitch is cute but annoying in this film - probably because the movie is annoying in itself.
