The Lowdown

AUDITION doesn’t start like your typical horror movie and you’d be forgiven for initially thinking a jolly rom-com may be on the cards. Oh how wrong you could be…The story sees a grieving widower (Ryo Ishibashi) who, after years of being faithful to his deceased wife, decides to hold a fake audition for a movie in order to find a new partner. He becomes fixated on the beautiful Asami but after a few cozy dates events take a rather ‘sinister’ turn…

Most gruesome scene

It has to be the wire saw vs leg…Ouch
