A CURSED DOLL by Hiroshi Takahashi

For the first time ever,

I was chosen for the Ieading roIe

and was busy rehearsing.

But I did have one concern.

That was...

Then he...




As experienced by Kaoru Kurokawa

Starring Michiko Hada

My story is about a doll.

A doll?

There's a doll in my house

which is a bit strange.


Strange, how?

l hadn't even known about the doll

until it appeared in my dream.

ScreenpIay by Hiroshi Takahashi

Directed by Hideo Nakata

The same dream, over and over.

I was waIking down the corridor,

then I heard the voice.

Satomi! Satomi!

Who is it?


A doll...

That was the cupboard

where we keep old stuff.

lt bothered me, so...

I found the same doII

I saw in my dream.

Oh, no...

Mum said we'd had it for ages.

But she put it away such a long

time ago, l couldn't have seen it.

l thought

it might appear in my dream again,

if l put it back in storage.


Satomi, the doll...

What is it?

Never mind. Sorry.


So l took it out and put it

in the alcove...



Did you just come up to my room?


What's the matter?

What is it, Satomi!

Mum! What's that doll?

What about it?

What's wrong?

ln the end...

Mum didn't tell me anything.

Do you still have the doll?

We do... in our alcove.

lt must have been my imagination.

You have to burn the doll.


lf you don't burn it...

Satomi, behind you!

Turn the light on! Quick!

Don't do that...

lt sounded real, Etsuko!

About the doll...

You should ask your mum.

l will. Thanks.

- See you then!

- Bye.

- See you!

- Bye!

Etsuko is being haunted by the doll!

l'm sure she is!

See you!

I couIdn't forget what Etsuko said.



Oh, Dad... what?

- How did it...

- Her taxi had an accident.

Dad, go home and get some rest.

l'll stay here tonight.

Will you?

Satomi... Satomi!

Who is it?

lt's me.

Who are you?

Don't you remember?

Don't you remember me?


You've forgotten your sister?

Take me home.

Take me home.

l was on the way to donate

the doll to the temple.


Because... you're afraid of it.

There's a temple for dolls.


ls there anything odd about the doll?

Anything odd?

Did l have a sister?

Wasn't this her doll?

Why didn't you tell me?

You were still a baby then.

l didn't want you to worry about it.

She gets lonely,

and comes into my dreams.

Someone died nearby,

but we're still having a party...

Let's take a break.

Satomi, you've been

acting strangely lately.

Are you ill or something?

No, not at all.

l didn't want to say this...

but if you can't play the part,

just tell me so.

No... l'm fine. Don't worry.


Did you find out about the doll?


Oh, that... lt's nothing.

l don't care about that any more.

No, don't look at me like that.

Satomi... Satomi...


Oh, Satomi! What's happened?

Where's the door, Mum?

Satomi! What is it?


Where's the door? Help!


You're dreaming.



- D... Dad...

- Satomi...

lt's almost...


Stop staring at me like that!

ls there something behind me?

Satomi, can l have a word with you?

Sorry, but you have to

give up the part.

lt's too much for you at

the moment. Do you understand?

Who will take it over?


l haven't told her yet, though.

- Satomi...

- You know it, don't you?

- The role is yours.

- Listen to me...

l don't want to.

Have you done something to the doll?

Don't stay home on your own!

lt may shock you,

when l tell you this...

..but l keep seeing
