“The scenes are acted out so realistically, it makes one actually feel nervous watching it because of the fear that it may come true. The acting was superb - I cannot find fault in any of the cast and the plot was tightly clinched in all the right places without it being too complicated (like most epidemic movies).”

The story is set in Asia in 2020 when West and East cultures are mixed in confusion. A young girl, Genpou Shiori is a descendant of the Phantomhive noble family. Shiori runs a large enterprise, Funtom Company, and she disguises herself in male attire, naming herself “Kiyoharu”. The family only allows males to be the head of the family, and they have also been tasked with the duty to solve difficult cases that happen in the underbelly of society by order of the queen. In order to get revenge, she gave up her life as a woman and made a contract with the demon butler, Sebastian Michaelis, in which Sebastian protects Shiori until she completes her revenge in exchange for devouring her soul. 

Numbers, my opinion and a MDL review:

More than 400 MDL’ers have watched this movie and more than 2000 MDL’ers has it on their plan to watch list.  Even though the movie just came out on DVD/subbed a few weeks ago, 15% rated this movie a 10! The average score is an 8.0 which is still amazing for MDL. 

I loved this movie (but if you watched the anime you might be disappointed). There were loads of action parts and a lot of scenes that kept you on the edge of your seat!

“Overall I would say that the movie as a stand-alone movie is enjoyable and well made. There was a certain darkness to it, the setting in the movie was nice. Editing, colouring and choice of music were all well done. ”
