Psychological Horror Film Embalming poster


Released - 1999
Genre - Horror, Crime
Director - Shinji Aoyama
Starring - Yukata Matsushige, Reiko Takashima

Embalming is an unsettling and twisting psychological horror from director Shinji Aoyama. We are treated to a chilling journey through the embalming process and the illegal organ trade as a young embalmer struggles to solve the mysteries surrounding her. This film flirts with different genres and would probably work better as a thriller than a horror, which could be achieved by simply removing the graphic embalming sequences. It is very nicely shot, well-acted and quite gripping in places but the muddled storyline gets frustrating at times and the surgical scenes have an almost documentary reality to them which is unnerving and unpleasant.
