Alter Ego, Full Movie 1h03m, Released 2002
Perhaps you have heard of Japanese director Takashi Shimizu, creator of The Grudge and the Ju-On series. Perhaps you have not, if you’re a fan of the various offerings of Kings of Horror, quality filmmaking may not be your jam. Worry not, loyal fans! This sweet baby is as bad as anything we’ve got on the channel, of course anything this bad is actually good, in horror terms, so buckle in for the fearsome tale of a Japanese schoolgirl model shoot gone horribly wrong!
Alter Ego tells the story of three young aspiring models on their very first fashion shoot (as schoolgirls, obvs) at an abandoned school one hot summer day. Without warning strange events begin occurring around the set that cause the models and photo crew to question their sanity as one by one they begin dying mysterious, agonizing and painful deaths.
Much like Godzilla and anime vending machines Alter Ego has never been seen outside of Japan…until NOW! You’re welcome!
