All Critics (5)

Otsuichi does not stop with the obvious conclusion that cellphones and the internet are bad. Instead, his film pinpoints the omnipresence of meaningless details on social media as the culprit.

"Stare mystifies as a chilling, effective J-horror - even with a somewhat stale format."

August 9, 2019 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

Despite a few minor tweaks, the addition of gore by way of eye trauma, and a modern polish on an old trope, 'Stare' doesn't stray far from the J-horror formula introduced by 'Ringu' two decades ago.

July 29, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Stare has all the makings of an excellent J-horror, even if it does drag in places and reinvents its own rules too many times. It may ultimately only pay off as a minor entry into the genre, but it's an entertaining one all the same.

Stare is an excellent example of how keeping it simple lies at the heart of truly effective horror.
