HorrorFest - 8 Films To Die For - Reincarnation (Rinne) (R)
A psychological horror-suspense film rooted in reincarnation that centers around several people who find themselves haunted by ghosts. Meanwhile, film director Ikuo Matsumara is holding auditions--prepping to make a movie about a 1970 murder spree at a hotel north of Tokyo; the killer being a professor who murdered his wife, several hotel guests and his young daughter, Chisato. To her surprise and trepidation, a curious ingénue, Nagisa Sugiura, lands a role in Ikuo's dark film. She is cast as the murderer's daughter, Chisato, which has been rewritten to accommodate the fact that Nagisa is a grown woman. Nagisa, however, soon begins to experience the 1970s murders as if they were happening around her, at an alarming rate.
