Plot: Anzu Natsuno, an ordinary student at an all-girls high school, is walking in the hallway when she is attracted by a mysterious melody coming from the auditorium. There, she finds her classmate Kana singing and, much to Anzu's shock, commits suicide right before her. A few days later, Anzu is approached by magazine columnist Riku Nagasei, who is investigating an urban legend about the Densen Uta, or the infectious song, that turns whoever sings it suicidal.
«One need look no further than the theatrical trailer to see how this was marketed as a straight-forward horror flick about a cursed song that forces people to commit suicide, but in reality it’s more of a social satire and vehicle for Jpop unit AKB48 that happens to have a horror sub-plot tying it all together. »
«“Suicide Song” is not entirely a horror film—there I said it. It might look like a horror film from the outset, but it’s more of a thriller than anything else, and a funny one at that. There are numerous instances within the film that are downright hilarious, strange, and even silly.»
