Had a great time in London. I've written a separate page about the Big Brother eviction. Click here to read it.

We also went for a ride on the London Eye, walked along the South Bank, crossed Millennium Bridge, saw the giant inflatable Blockhead statue outside the Tate Modern, had dinner at a Thai restaurant, went shopping in Covent Garden and generally behaved like excited tourists.

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

We also saw a totemo scary Japanese horror film called Dark Water (Honogurai mizu no soko kara ) directed by Hideo Nakata, the guy who also directed super-spooky Ring. That's the Japanese original, not the rubbish American version. In Dark Water, a single mother and her daughter move into a creepy apartment block. The ceiling drips. A red child's bag keeps appearing. And they soon hear about a young girl who went missing a couple of years before. Guess where she lived? It has no gore nor blood, but leaves you feeling strung out and shaken. Brilliant stuff. Nowhere near as horrific as Audition, but scarier than Ring.
