Dorm” aka “Dek hor” is one of my favorite films this year. Absolutely love it. I woke up after a fairly late night at Udine 9 to drag myself in to the morning screening to see it. I should really note in all honesty I’ve been really burnt out by all the mutations in different countries and markets of what seems to be the same J-horror ghost story. I can watch the first 5 to 10 minutes and already know where the movie is going in these types of deals. “Dorm” thankfully was really an exception. Each of its three acts are carefully constructed as a drama first and not a film revolving around cheap thrills or shocks. It really immerses itself into an enthralling coming of age story with horror elements. The arc of the main characters transformation and how it gets you to emotionally dig into it really sets this apart from the rest. I really can easily see this film being in my top 5 at the end of the year. Consider this a little film that could. A shame there is so little buzz about this film out there but really want to put it on the movie map this year as a must see film! You don’t have to be a horror fan or a j-horror fan or any of that to appreciate this film. “Dorm” hits you right at the core of what makes you a movie lover.
