Over the last few years, Asian Horror has been kind of a hot property. Anything that’s even remotely adaptable has been translated for English speaking audiences. The Ring, The Eye, Pulse, and most recently, The Uninvited. However, I think, were the Hollywood machine to get a hold of this property, the wouldn’t know what to do with it. Behold Ekusute or Exte: Hair Extensions!
According to what I’ve read, the movie is about hair extensions that carry around the hate and anger of the original owner. Man, wouldn’t that suck? You think you’re headed to the salon for a nice day of pampering and all of the sudden, the stuff on your head goes homicidal. I bet this sort of thing has never happened to Beyonce or Gwenyth Paltrow.
Anyway, if you’re sickly fascinated by this like I am*, you can watch the Japanese trailer here (but be warned, blood is shed and hair grows out of people’s eyesockets).
*I can’t help but want to watch this, if only to see what they do to defeat the killer hair? Do they take scissors to it? Use some industrial stength hairspray? Seriously, I need to know!
