Dear Michelle,Terumi,Riana,and Catherina
We saw your great movie. Your Japanese was really good! What nice performers you were! Your horror story frightened us!! Why did you make movie about mochi? Do you like mochi? We like mochi very much! It was interesting that the students were killed because they ate mochi-just food! We want to make such a wonderful movie! See you!

Dear Yuri-tachi-san, 8^)

Michelle, Terumi, Riana and/or Catherina will make a note on this page before you get to your class on Wednesday - sorry for the delay! I'll be interested to see what they write about the mochi; I don't normally get scared at mochi, but they really created an effective horror story around it. Are horror movies popular with young people in Japan?

Take care,
Rushton


Dear Michelle,Terumi,Riana,and Catherina
I saw this film!. I thought horror film is difficult to play. The most interesting scene is many letter is posted. How many times did you make this film?

Dear Rushton

Yes!!:-) Japanese young peolpe like horror movies! Do you know Chakushin-ari and Ringu? Japanese horror movies are a little different from American horror movies. Japanese ones are creepy and gloomy, but we watch them to have thrills! Do you know famous American movies?

Have a nice day!
From Yuri and Yuri


Hello Yuri and Yuri,
I'm glad that you guys liked the movie! All of us really like mochi, and when we were filming this, we all got to eat quite a bit of it, so it was great! :]
You guys didn't even get to see the real end of the movie, so I think one of us will try to post the youtube link so you can see the end. None of us think that the movie was that scary, so we're glad that we achieved that effect. Have you ever tried making a scary movie? If you haven't, you should try! It's really fun.
EDIT: Here's the link! Have fun watching the end! :D

Hi Kaori,
We spent a really long time on this video, it was so hard to do. I'm glad you liked the letter scene. If you look closely, you can see the third letter hits me in the head. :[ Do you often watch horror films? I get too scared to watch them! xD

- Riana

Dear Riana
It's real! Were you ok? third letter hit your head! I like horror movie. I have seen "Saw". I think Japanese movie is different from American one. To a Japanese, Japanese movie is ghostly, while American movie is grotesque.(all movie is not so) Of course, Americans probably feel the opposite. I like Japanese horror movie better than American one. For example, I like "ring" , "juon" and "chakusinari". I'm looking forward to seeing and talking to you in this fall!!
From Kaori


Hi Kaori,

I've actually never seen "Saw," I'm too afraid! Plus, I don't really like the idea of that much blood.
I also like Japanese horror movies more than American ones. I think the plot is better. :]
In preparation for making this movie, all of us watched "Juon 2," but I didn't really get what happened at the end.
Haha, thank you for the concern, but when the letter hit my head, it was more embarrassing than painful.
Talk to you in the fall!

Riana :]

Dear Riana

Yuri.Y has made a short horror movie in high school. It was very fun! The sroty about going to ruins. Yuri.K has never made a horror movie, but Yuri.K made a haunted house at high school festival. It took long time to prepare, but the event was a great success!

It was great talking to you. We will make movies. Please look forword to our movies!
See you again this fall:)

From Yuri and Yuri


Hello Yuri and Yuri,

The haunted house sounds really cool! I wish I could've seen it.

I can't wait to see your movies!
Talk to you later.

Riana :]

Dear Yuri.K -san, Yuri.Y-san, and Kaori-san

I'm really glad that you liked our movie.. >w<
My friends and I really like Japanese horror movies and we decide to make something similar to it. :)
But Terumi doesn't like scary movies (she's easily scared XD) so we decided to make it funny also.
That's why we decided to make the ghost kill us for mochi, to make it silly, and yes we really like mochi and we got to eat quite a number because of the movie.(>w<)
