Argento would be proudA sequel in name only, this second entry in the EDT-series is easily themost satisfying one. It's as gory as one might expect from an Asian horror film -I've seen this film round eight times, but still have tolook away when the breaking-the-arm-over-the-radiator bit comes along-but this one has an ingenious plot and decent acting to boot.Far less derivative than the original, EDT 2 involves a young, timidgirl who goes on a killing spree, her self-loathing fueling the fire.There's also a sub-plot of an abortion gone awry, and the re-appearanceof Hideki, probably the scariest child in movie history. Dream-logic,most of it, but it works. The photography is perversely stylish, the pacing hypnotic. Some images,like a wounded victim staggering forward against a full-neon backdrop,or the twisted ballet of protagonist and antagonist battling in a meshof white sheets, will stay with you for a very long time. Thesoundtrack, a Goblin-inspired celesta-theme, is breath-taking, andextremely well used troughout the film. EDT 2 is top-notch film-making all the way, and will have you lookingunder the bed for nights to come. Argento would be proud.........

This is the best Japanesemovie I have ever seen;it is a powerful and intense tale made in a style very reminiscent of Dario Argento,especially in its use of music.Whilst one might doubt the mentality of the characters in putting themselves in a position of such potentially great danger as they do here,I guess you have to accept it as there would be no movie.The killings are graphically and imaginatively portrayed and streets ahead of what you might see in a US movie of this type. The denouement is perhaps somewhat unoriginal but you can't have everything and as the events leading up to it are so well realised this is hardly a criticism.The leading actress is very good and this being a Japanese movie is not averse to supplying a few gratuitous pantyhose shots.Ah,those Japanese!All in all this is a superb introduction for anyone wishing to dip theirtoes into a particularly gory sub-genre of the exploitation field.8 out of 10.
