YesAsia Editorial Description

Directed by J-Horror regular Tsuruta Noroi (Ring: 0), Orochi - Blood is adapted from Japanese horror manga master Umezu Kazuo's well-known graphic novel. Tanimura Mitsuki (God's Puzzle) floats through the film as the mysterious Orochi, an ageless girl cloaked in blood red who has observed the world's suffering for centuries upon centuries. Her latest subjects are two cursed sisters with a gruesome family secret, played by Kimura Yoshino (Sukiyaki Western Django) and Nakagoshi Noriko (Drop). Creepy and beautifully unsettling, Orochi - Blood creates a chilling atmosphere with its creaky mansion setting, brightly colored costumes, and outstanding performances from the three leading ladies.

Since a young age, Monzen sisters Kazusa (Kimura Yoshino) and Lisa (Nakagoshi Noriko) have been driven by their neurotic mother (also Kimura Yoshino) to make it big, planting the seeds of a lifelong sibling rivalry. Kazusa followed in the footsteps of her mother, now exiled to the attic, and became a famous movie star. Plain-looking Lisa dutifully tends to the house and her sister, but she holds more than a few secrets and grudges about her lot. Hanging over both sisters is a shocking curse that strikes the women of the Monzen family when they turn 29, and Kazusa's time is fast running out. Into this tense household wanders Orochi (Tanimura Mitsuki), who becomes an observer and a pawn in the sisters' bloody struggle against fate and each other.

Orochi - a very mysterious watcher Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Orochi Blood is a fantasy drama-horror based on a Japanese comic manga from 1969-1970 and directed by Tsuruta Noroi who also directed J-horror Ring 0. These two movies have a connection in that they have a more theatrical horror style, ‘Orochi Blood’ mainly shot in the house and grounds of a mansion, and with a smidgeon of Hammer horror, a wee bit of period drama and part S Korean ‘A Tale of Two Sisters’. Interestingly the character of Orochi (Mitsuki Tanimura) isn’t exactly the main one, she’s a robed watcher (or maybe a recording angel type) with supernatural powers and the main plot thrust is provided by the characters of two sisters Kazusa (Yoshino Kimura) and Lisa (Noriko Nakagoshi) of the cursed Monzen family. Two actresses that perform excellently well here.

Orochi is fated to observe people for every 100 years and in this movie assigned to watch the Monzen family. Orochi enters the family mansion and wonders at a large portrait of a woman and child above the stairway. In the 1950s the present heir is successful actress Aoi Monzen (also Yosino Kimura) obsessed in re-watching a movie take of herself at the mansion and strict at demanding that her two young daughters Lisa and Kazusa can sing well at a vocal performance. Kazusa though sings out of key and is punished by Aoi for not trying hard enough. Aoi is obsessed that the children be competitive with each other and become famous like herself. But Aoi is a feared by a Monzen family curse, telling Kazusa and Lisa to stay away from the mansion attic. But re-watching the same movie take of herself at her house, Aoi becomes hysterical – she can see the mark on her forehead. Panicking in her room, Aoi is confronted by Orochi, who Aoi believes to be her new ‘maid’ merely taking a ‘spider’ away from her forehead. Such is the illusion power of Orochi. Later the hysterical Aoi becomes drunk and drives her car into a ditch as Orochi attempts to save her from crashing. Orochi then discovers odd scabs on Aoi’s forehead and fingers, a raised scaring that when Orochi touches them, casuse Orochi to bleed. Orochi then falls sleepy moving into woodland concerned that she will sleep too early before her mission is complete. Drawing to a lonely wood, Orochi then falls into a deep hole.

A Fame monster’s self obsession (on overdrive) Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Years pass on as both Lisa and Kazusa become grown woman at the mansion. Lisa is amazed how the blood of a girl had partly healed the odd scaly scabs on her mother Aoi. Finding an orphaned girl at a strict minstrel’s home, Lisa takes Yoshiko (also Mitsuki Tanimura) to the Monzen home as a maid for her mentally hysterical sister Kazusa. Lisa is actually interested in Yoshiko’s blood, and Lisa remembers as a little girl how she had once seen, with her sister, a mysterious red robed woman at the Monzen mansion – who looked just like Yoshiko. That strange robed woman also had blood that cured. But now Lisa is at odds with her sister Kazusa who always berates her. Kazusa fights, wrestles and beats Lisa for being late, or giving her strange food like a winged bat on a plate. Lisa had been always favoured by her mother Aoi, but Kazusa the rejected failure. Such as when their mother Aoi had beaten Kazusa on the hands with a stick for singing out of tune. But now Kazusa was obsessed with her mother – needing to be like her and watching her old movies in the cinema room. But Lisa knew that one day when Kazusa turned 29 her beauty would be afflicted by the Monzen curse – just like it had her grandmother and her mother Aoi, now shackled in the attic room as a freak of nature.

But somewhere in a black hole Orochi feels the blood of her spirit awaken her in Yoshiko, and needs to return to the Monzen mansion before all madness will break loose.
This is a slightly ‘older’ Japanese movie now (2008) but it’s certainly a very different type of fantasy horror (well drama horror more so) that you’d be used to - and a very good movie too (with obvious hints of vampirism about it). Certainly a strangely odd one, but I guess this all relates to the manga (which I’ve never read). Yoshino Kimura as Aoi/Kazusa acts incredibly well at both parts and I could imagine her doing big theatre works by her good acting. Noriko Nakagoshi also compliments well the madness and strictness as the other sister (and boy is there one mad sister bash, pull and slap scene near the end...and more!). The unusual Orochi (Mitsuki Tanimura reminds me of ex-Kara’s JiYoung a bit) is an elusive symbolic, and her mission never ending. It’s amazing there hasn’t been some Japanese TV series of Orochi’s mystical existence through the centuries, as she lives every 100 years...forever. Worth seeing this most definitely.
