It certainly wasn’t amazing but Marebito was a unique film to watch and I think a must-see for any filmmaker. The way it was shot and the storyline was unlike anything else I’ve seen. A cameraman is searching for "true fear" and to find it he explores the undergrounds of Tokyo to find a Netherworld. There he finds a pale woman, naked and chained in an alcove and he takes her back home to nurse her back to health. Her existence remains a mystery throughout the film; all we know is that she needs human blood to survive (though the feeling is different than a vampire, maybe more like a robot?). Shimizu is the director of the Ju-on series right? So it’s that similar style.
