Exte: Hair Extensions (2007) Synopsis:

The plot involves an aspiring hair dresser (Chiaki Kuriyama which you may know as Gogo Yubari from Kill Bill vol. 1) who becomes the obsession of a tricophilic man who sells hair to styling saloons for wigs and extensions. The hair he sells though it’s from the corpse of a girl who died during a organ harvesting session, and it continues to grow luscious, healthy, and shining from her scalp and the scars that run all over her body. Thereeefore, the women who happen to get an extension from the corpse are doomed to be killed by their own hair.

Exte: Hair Extensions (2007) Review:

Exte: Hair Extensions (2007) is a Japanese horror movie I thoroughly enjoyed. What I like about it is that the story isn’t only centered on the curse of the hair. You discover what kind of girl is the character of Kuriyama, her problems with her big sister who continues to be a bully even now, in their adult life, leaving her daughter to fend for herself while she’s gone pursuing her amorous affairs.  And why she’d always wanted to be a hairdresser. Also, little by little you find out about the corpse’s story and the police investigation on her disappearance. It is not a story told from the perspective of only one character.

A second reason why I enjoyed this movie is the lack of blood. A horror movie without blood gushing from any part of the body, is always welcome. Even without the gore element, Exte: Hair extensions has its scary moments, like all Japanese horror movies do.

A third reason and final why I like this movie would be the clear and sunny image. It’s shot in a optimistic way and that’s why the parts who are supposed to be horror, are indeed scary.

I gave it 8/10.
