Synopsis
The cold dead of night is a dangerous time to be near the Shinyo Academy. Girls have begun to mysteriously disappear without a trace, and the school is alive with rumors. With each new disappearance, a lingering fear grows ever stronger -- fear that a shinigami .. the very spirit of death .. is prowling the city. They say you never see it coming .. a lone whistle splits the night silence, and it suddenly appears to steal your soul ... However, Nagi Kirima has never feared the darkness. She's determined to uncover the truth, but there aren't many clues to follow. A mysterious new drug that's appeared on the streets .. A girl still haunted by a serial killer who died five years ago .. Nagi must piece together the entire story, before more students end up missing .. or dead.

Mediocre production values, poor special effects, lackluster acting, awful costume design, lazy and unimaginative direction, cinematography and editing. Well, that sums up the first 45 minutes, which is as much as I got through. It's a shame because the material it's based on is so good.

Ordinarily I wouldn't post a review after a partial viewing, but I really doubt the movie could have risen above these serious flaws, so take this opinion for what it's worth.

I don't think anyone who isn't already a huge fan of the fantastic anime series Boogiepop Phantom would be interested. If you are reading this for some reason and haven't watched that series, I highly recommend that you rent that instead.
