Carved ★★ Kuchisakeonna; SlitMouthed Woman 2007

Urban legend has the spirit of a woman grotesquely disfigured by her jealous husband roaming the streets of a suburban town terrorizing young victims. Children are coming up missing, but as teachers and officials desperately investigate, panic rises and dark secrets are revealed. Remake does not add any depth or height to an already well used premise. Japanese with subtitles. 90m/C DVD .
