      Disadvantages

      A 'super', natural film

      SILK.
      ===

      This film has some advanced theoretical science in regard to worm holes, electromagnetic waves and Anti gravity.

      It deals with Japanese scientist, Hashimoto who is the inventor of the 'Menger Sponge'. When used it traps all free energy within a small radius.
      With it he can walk on ceilings, slow down time and even trap 'Ghosts'.

      The film starts with the hideous deaths of some residents of a block of apartments. The specialist team is brought in and soon they have a ghost trapped, the ghost of a young boy with a sad and disturbing past.
      But soon the team start dieing, who is he escaping from the impenetrable room. What is he wordlessly saying?
      What horrors is he about to inflict on the world? Does the ghost and the Menger sponge hold the secret of immortality? And how will Hashimoto turn it to his advantage?

      A superb movie and right from the start you are hooked. It has a continual creeping atmosphere throughout the entire length of the movie.
      The pace never slackens and you will be drawn in and held, even the subtitles will not make the slightest difference.

      And to further aid you, here is the DVD information:

        You will enjoy this film, honestly

        SILK.
        ******
        ~Introduction~
        Japanese scientist, Hashimoto, has invented the 'Menger Sponge' which is a black hole for electromagnetic waves. The Menger sponge traps and stores energy and when it is full it can defy gravity, basically "Anti Gravity".
        But with unexpected side effects, Very Scary side effects.


        ~Synopsis~
        In an apartment block a man has died, a horrible ghastly death. The Menger team are brought in and find a ghost, the ghost of a young boy. They spray the room with Menger spores to trap him inside and then set about trying to discover who he is, why he died, what he is doing there and what is he saying when he speaks, wordlessly.

        The inventor of the Menger sponge brings into his team, a kind of super cop. He is clever, fast and has a special talent. He can read lips, perhaps even the lips of the dead or of ghosts?

        And then things turn really scary because Hashimoto has plans of his own.

        ~Opinions~
        A SUPERB FILM !

        Right from the start there is a creeping atmosphere surrounding the movie. The whole film is wonderfully lit, it reminded me a bit of 'Bladerunner' and of 'The Grudge' with a superb twist of Sci-Fi.
        The plot zooms along at a great pace and is very easy to grasp.
        When the detective leaves the house to follow the ghost of the young boy things really get spooky.

        Oh and the title "Silk" well that's where the Sci-fi comes in, sorry no spoilers!

        The only downside for some people will be the subtitles all the way through.
        Didn't bother me though.

        This is my surprise find of 2008.
