"Carved: A Slit-Mouthed Woman" (Kuchisake-onna) Movies

As I've blogged about the Asian Urban Legend of the Slit-Mouthed Woman I've also encountered two movies which were inspired from it... the two movies were entitled "Kuchisake-Onna" or "Carved: A Slit-Mouthed Woman" Japanese Movies.

The first Japanese urban legend to movie adaptation release was last March 2007. The movie was internationally entitled as Carved: A Slit-Mouthed Woman which was also known as Kuchisake-onna in Japan where it was created. Here is a movie trailer of that movie:

A prequel movie entitled Carved 2 or Kuchisake-onna 2 was also released this year at around March of 2008. This prequel tells about how the slit-mouthed woman came to be.
