director of NOROI
recreates the Japanese urban legend of a vicious female ghost who has
no legs (initially raped and mutilated by occupying American soldiers).
Today she mostly trolls the overpass of the train station, preying on
young victims who wear or display something red. According to the legend,
this Teke-Teke (so-named because of the sound her fingernails make on
the ground when she "runs") will immediately kill and
eviscerate any young woman who looks at her. However, if the girl escapes,
Teke-Teke will hunt her down and slaughter her within three days.
Shiraishi uses many of his same techniques here, shooting the movie
in documentary/exploratory fashion, as his camera follows the lead characters
while they investigate. Film 'One and Two' were shot back-to-back
in 2009, immediately after his OCCULT.
