BR movie is great... not Kiriyama going on a killing spree is not really shown unlike the manga. :D

they should have included that scene in the manga where Mitsuko seduced Kiriyama but ended up getting killed.

haven't read the novel yet... i wish they would sell it here... but i doubt it.

The movies were more watered down than the gore level in the manga if you can imagine that. I personally didnt like the movie, although the story was pretty good, the way it came out was bleh. The manga is interesting in its own way, i think id stick with the novel though.
