Carved: The Slit-Mouthed Woman (Kuchisake-onna)

average asian horror flick

carved isn't really anything special for a horror movie. the plot revolves around a ghost story about a 'slit-mouthed' woman who terrorizes Japan. the legend turns out to be real as children go missing, and we learn that the woman is really the mother of a teacher at an elementary school. for some reason after years in hiding, the woman comes back now and its up to the son to destroy her. lots of child abuse and big-ass scissor cuts later we are left with no real resolution. the ending was pretty predictable however. kinda freaky, but nothing really scary to see here.
