Nursing student Asuka (Atsuko Maeda) has just moved into an apartment complex with her parents and younger brother. On the first night in her new room, she is awoken by a strange scratching sound coming from the apartment of her neighbor, a reclusive old man who has refused all attempts at communication. Concerned over his well being, Asuka enters his home only to find him dead from malnutrition. Worse, it looks as if he had been trying to claw his way into her room. ¶ Asuka learns that there have been a number of strange deaths in the complex over the years from Shinobu (Hiroki Narimiya), the handyman cleaning up the old man’s apartment. Even the girls at school whisper rumors of it being haunted.

hard to belive this came from the same director that brought us masterpieces like "Dark Water" and Ringo/The Ring ...

Atmospheric J-horror from the man who started the craze. It is not out for jump-scares which is good but it doesn't now what it wants to be without it. Switching to psychological horror midway and ending in a fx and scream heavy climax. It's not bad but neither something new.
