For those still in an Alice in Borderland season 2 hangover, Netflix and Warner Bros. Japan’s new Japanese horror film Remember/Me might be the perfect thing to add to the top of your watchlist. This teen scream is based on a popular horror manga series called Karada Sagashi from Katsutoshi Murase and Welzard.

The live-action film follows a group of six high schoolers trapped overnight in their school while being hunted by a being known as the “Red Person.” Hidden throughout the school are various body parts from a dismembered victim and the group must find them all before time is up or the Red Person kills them and they must restart the deadly day again.

It’s a horror-style timeloop film with an added “game” component that should appeal to fans of things like Alice in Borderland and even the Blumhouse franchise Happy Death Day.

Actress Kanna Hashimoto stars in the lead role of protagonist Asuka, and Japanese filmmaker Eiichirō Hasumi (Assassination Classroom: Graduation and Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness) directs.

Can they break out of the murderous loop and see tomorrow? A deathly exhilarating climax awaits in this ultra-thrilling looping horror experience.”"

Then in September 2022, it was announced that a new series would be released called Karada Sagashi I (Body Search Different), which is now available on the website.
