God's Left Hand, Devil's Right Hand (2006)

A young boy named Sou dreams of nasty things that eventually come to pass, but quite often to people he's never met. The premonitions take their toll, requiring the boy's sister to step in and help out.
The questions that arise during the first half hour lure us into the bloody strangeness, while the mystery drives the sister onward, but it doesn't last. It doesn't explain many of the important things, which is something I was hoping for and may be the reason I didn't like it as much as I otherwise could've. Plus, the film's best scene is also its worst scene, which was very annoying.
Ultimately, it's an interesting horror oddity from Japan that goes to some very dark places, yet fails to shed light where it was needed.
