An unscary, B-grade, inflight horror head-scratcher

Well, here’s one you’ll never have to watch on an airliner. The broadly stereotypical passengers aboard the L.A.-to-Tokyo title flight (a 747 with just two cabin attendants) begin to experience some spooky-ish happenings, starting with a passenger spitting blood and dying. Then others begin to fall victim to some never-seen (cheaper, I guess), vaguely Japanesy spirit.

I couldn’t connect to the characters or the laughable narrative in this unscary, B-grade, inflight horror head-scratcher. Directed by J-horror journeyman Takashi Shimizu, creator of The Grudge. Direct to DVD everywhere else in the world. (80 min)
