10-year-old Daigo (Takeru Shibuya) kills a sick rabbit on the school playground which he adored. The other kids call him "rabbit killer." Since then the boy has stayed at home and has been tutored by his sister Kiriko. Kiriko's mother died of an incomprehensible disease 10 years ago. Since that time Kiriko has not spoken. Their father (Teruyuki Kagawa) is distant & also silent, working away on his storybook illustrations. One day, Daigo and Kiriko go to watch a 3D movie. A rabbit suddenly pops out of the screen and Daigo attempts to grab it. That night, Daigo is lured into a strange world through the stairs in their home by a rabbit doll ...

I don't quite know what to say here. I guess this movie was partly made as a joke of sorts. I'm not sure what I expected with a movie title like "The Rabbit Curse" though.

Well, to be honest, I guess I expected some of the charmy and/or disturbing japanese quirkiness that usually embodies these types of movies. To say the least, this was nothing like that at all. Is it weird? Yes, but only because of awful directing and some of the most dragged out scenes I've ever seen in a movie. It's really awkward too. Enough to cause giggles instead of being scary. I would avoid this, and check out movies like "Strip Mahjong" or "Suicide Club" which are actually good movies for when you're in the mood for that totally messed up bizarre movie, which only Japan can bring.
