I did read a short post in another forum about it. I just watched it and I rate everything on TOMIE, so with Tomie a 10 Carved gets a strong 5. I also rate on "re-watchability" (Is that a word?) I rate Tomie at an 8 (I've re-watched it about a hundred times!) So Carved gets a 1...? It is an interesting Japanese urban legend type movie. Not very gory, not very scary but definitely "ODD" and disturbing. Be aware that it contains violence to children. that was a turn-off to me, but It does have a message.
