The Remake of a Bad Film May Be Better, but Never a Great Film
24 October 2011 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Haruka Yamano (Noriko Aoyama) returns from America to Tokyo in a wheelchair with both legs with multiple fractures in a car accident and is helped by her father and her brother Koichi Yamano (Aoi Nakamura). Their father travels to Singapore for business meetings and Koichi takes care of his sister and films her most of the time with his camera.

On the next morning, Haruka tells that her wheelchair had moved during the night and Koichi check the windows of her room to see if a stranger has broken in their house. He tells that probably a spirit had moved the wheelchair and he uses salt near the door of Haruka's bedroom to protect her against evil spirits. However, on the next morning they find that the salt is spread near the door. He checks the tape and believes that the house is haunted by a ghost. He decides to tape his room too and along the days, weird noises and events happen in the house.

They invite the priest Saionji to purify the house against ghosts and along four days nothing unusual happens. Haruka tells to Koichi that, in America, she had hit a woman called Katie that had just murdered her boyfriend and appeared in front of her car. Their father returns home but he needs to travel again. But on the fifth night they see in the tape that the house is still haunted. Koichi decides to call Saionji again, but they learn that the priest had died five nights ago after leaving their house. Haruka discloses to her brother that weird things had happened to her also in America. Further, she tells that she had researched the life of Katie and had found that the girl was also haunted by ghosts. Now the fiend is more violent and still haunts the siblings and they do not know what to do.

The low-budget "Paranômaru Akutibiti: Dai-2-shô - Tokyo Night" is a remake of "Paranormal Activity", with a similar story. After the original "The Blair Witch Project", many low-budget movies made with hand-held camera have been released. "Paranormal Activity" is ridiculously overrated but this Japanese remake is better than the original. However, the remake of a bad film may be even better, but never a great film. Last but not the least, this is the first time that I see a Japanese remake of an American film and both do not worth watching. My vote is four.

Title (Brazil): "Atividade Paranormal Tóquio" ("Paranormal Activity Tokyo")
