2LDK (2002) - Yukihiko Tsutsumi

Film series: Duel Project
Screenplay: Yukihiko Tsutsumi
Producer: Shinya Kawai

2LDK (aka. 2 Bedroom, Living Room, Dining Room, and Kitchen) is a strange suspenseful horror movie from Japan. The entire thing only features two characters and takes place in the span of one week.

The movie features two young actresses that both get an apartment together and learn that each one is being considered for the same role. This infuriates the two women and they end up battling for seventy minuets. Not just fight but they literally beat the living shit out of each other with various items thorough out the house.

They use various items in the house including a chainsaw to attack each other. This is it. This is the entire plot of the film. Jealousy spawns physical battle. Its pretty basic. The entire thing is filmed in one location. They don't vary from this recipe and I believe that it actually hurts the film. I respect what they are going for here, but other than it being a pretty interesting idea the movie falls flat.
