For tonights discussion we reach out to the land of the rising sun, Japan. If you’ve never watched a Japanese horror movie then you are missing out. If you have had the pleasure of viewing one of these gorefests then you understand what I mean when I say those twisted Godzilla fearing fucks take it to another level. Memorize your lines and get ready for Audition.

A middle age widower is urged by his 17 year old son to get back into the dating game but he’s too nervous to go out and meet women. A friend and colleague of the father tells him that he will set up auditions for a fake movie and then he can pick the girl that catches his eye and proceed from there. And boy does he pick a winner. Asami is a beautiful young woman with a soft voice and tragic past. His friend tries to warn him that something isn’t right about this girl, none of her references can be confirmed but he is stricken by cupid or the Japanese equivalent of cupid. I’m gonna leave the rest for you to discover because shortly after it starts going off the tracks and if you can make it to the end…congrats…I guess.

This is one of those films that has the gotcha moments backed up by the gore and pushes it to the edge. Directors Eli Roth and Rob Zombie have both said that this film was difficult to watch all the way through. For those reasons and more that I can’t talk about without spoiling it for you, Audition gets a rating of: Watch It On A First Date. Till next time friends, stay entertained.
