A year after a botched hostage negotiation with a serial killer turned deadly, ex-detective Koichi and his wife move into a new house with a deeply strange new neighbor. His old cop colleagues come calling for his help on a mysterious case, which may be related to the strange goings-on next door.
Genre maestro Kiyoshi Kurosawa (Pulse) taps into his skill with policier and horror films for this thriller cleverly blending domestic vulnerability and unsolved crime. Throw credibility out the window and embrace the film’s tingling sense of unease and the uncanny as the story twists and turns.
