Kairo has come very recommended to me. A conversation about Japanese cinema couldn’t arise without a certain someone telling me “you should see Kairo!” So I’ve kept my eyes peeled and sure enough, it never showed up. I didn’t even see it in stores! When the hell had this movie been released?! It should’ve been riding the wave of
apathy interest sparked by its American remake Pulse, starring the wonderful, talented, and totally misguided actress Kristen Bell from TV’s Veronica Mars. I mean, was she THAT eager to fall into Sarah Michelle Gellar’s footsteps? But anyways, imagine my surprise when scouring a used DVD store the clouds parted and Kairo plopped into my lap. I was excited and eager to see what kind of movie it was. You could say I’m still waiting!
