Two stories that will only eventually become one:

First there's Yayoi (Karina), who has strange dreams about a hotel she has never been to, but eventually she learns that 35 years ago, 11 people were killed there by a man who made experiments in reincarnation. Eventually, Yayoi pays a visit to the hotel, and rather surprisingly, the events seem to repeat themselves, enacted by a gang of spirits and or zombies, and Yayoi is somehow sucked into the events and killed.

The second story conerns Nagisa (Yuka), a young actress who has just landed her first big role in a film about the events that happened in the hotel 35 years ago, and almost immediately she starts to have weird dreams and strange visions about the murders - which eventuatlly lead her to believe she is the reincarnation of the character she plays in the film, the little daughter of the killer who got killed last. Eventually, she too is sucked into the events, but when she runs from the killer, she has to find out her role has already been taken by somebody else, by Yayoi, and gradually she has to realize she's actually the reincarnation of the killer himself, and the souls of those he has killed have come back to haunt him ... well, haunt her. In the end, she goes crazy.

 


Flix.com

A very creepy Japanese ghost story that features quite a few interesting and unexpected plottwists ... but somehow, the film also tries to be too smart for its own good on one hand - when the killer's experiments in reincarnation are explained to the audience, it kind of gets silly -, and on the other hand, it tries way too hard to make its point, which only leads to shock motives repeating themselves again and again. But maybe I'm just a little picky here or try to make too much out of the movie, because as a simple gbhost story with quite a few surprises, Reincarnation works rather well - just don't expect a classic of any kind.
