I recently got to see this movie and found it enjoyable. It reminded me of a Japanese interpretation of Stephen King's "Firestarter" if the girl was a young woman instead of a child.
The soundtrack CD also impressed me. It was a good mix of slow, eerie, piano music, faster paced action tracks and synthesizer tracks with a few slow love type themes. Ko Otani has also done the scores for 1995's "Gamera: Guardian Of The Universe" and this years upcoming new Godzilla movie "GMK". In general this CD was a very pleasant listen with no bad tracks but not many outstanding ones either. If you enjoyed his "Gamera" soundtrack you'll probably like this one too.
