Ekusute (Exte: Hair Extensions)
Chiaki Kuriyama is an assistant hairstylist at a small town salon, charmingly named after multiple murderer Gilles de Rais. Her sister is a beer disposal unit who dumps her daughter on her doorstep and stumbles off into the night. A morgue janitor obsessed with hair steals a female corpse from his workplace fridge that won't stop growing long, looping strands of thick black hair. He trims the dead locks and sells them as extensions, which go nuts and start to kill the women who wear them.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This Japanese horror movie is weirder than anything life could offer."
‑ Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
"With fewer possible resolutions than recent J-horror ringtones and video cassettes, 'Exte: Hair Extensions' goes nowhere surprising."
‑ Donald J. Levit, ReelTalk Movie Reviews
"No amount of absurdity -- and this film delivers plenty -- can clip the essential enjoyments of Sion Sono's hair-horror flick, about haunted extensions that strangle their style-obsessed victims to death."
‑ Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
"An erratic J-horror fable."
‑ Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice
