A year after a botched hostage negotiation with a serial killer turned deadly, ex-detective Koichi (Hidetoshi Nishijima), and his wife move into a new house with a deeply strange new neighbor (Teruyuki Kagawa). His old cop colleagues come calling for his help on a mysterious case, which may be related to the strange goings-on next door, in this insidiously-constructed narrative that braids plot twists on top of plot twists and shock on top of shock.. "Winner of Best Director" - Fantasia Film Festival 2016. "The movie is thoroughly and utterly creepy, partly because Mr. Kurosawa knows how to slither under your skin, but also because his movies transcend the classifications (and limits) valued by critics and content providers." - Manohla Dargis, The New York Times. "A slow-burning mystery that gets darker by the minute before reaching a lurid, queasy finale." - Noel Murray, The Los Angeles Times
