This nearly shot-for-shot remake of Kiyoshi Kurosawa's haunting 2001 film Kairo replaces the original Asian cast with the usual group of teen TV stars (Kristen Bell from "Veronica Mars," Ian Somerhalder from "Lost") and tries a little harder to explain what the hell's going on. It all has something to do with a suicide, a computer virus and a whole hell of a lot of ghosts. Despite a consistantly creepy mood, the slow-going film can't quite match the original's surreal freakiness. 87 minutes PG-13.
