  • Carrying on the tradition of J-horror thrillers that have taken the Western world by storm, PREMONITION is a creepy descent into the realms of the supernatural, assuming an unnerving, non-linear form, and taking numerous unexpected turns along the way. Hideki Satomi is a professor whose world is turned upside down when he reads an obituary foretelling his daughter's death in a car crash, which in fact comes to pass later that same day. Three years later Hideki is still devastated by this tragedy, which has estranged from his wife, Ayaka, who is convinced her husband is crazy; she believes he hallucinated the obituary, which later came to obsess him. Eventually, however, the two switch roles, as Ayaka herself comes to be haunted by the future-predicting newspaper, and a series of unexplained killings all over Japan draws the couple ever-deeper into the mystery. Although PREMONITION satisfies the expectations audiences have come to hold with regards to Japanese horror, it avoids redundancy and the ubiquitous imagery found in such films, making it a unique and engrossing entry in this ever-exciting genre.
