"...gorgeously riveting and profoundly repulsive." - Alexis Glass, KFC Cinema
From Shinya Tsukamoto, the director of cult classic Tetsuo: Iron Man, comes a sumptuous horror tale of savage sibling rivalry set in the early 20th century. Yukio, an affluent doctor, finds himself haunted by a mysterious double. What initially seems like an eerie presence turns hideously real when the sinister figure murders Yukio's parents and imprisons him at the bottom of a deep well. Flashbacks reveal that the two men are in fact twins who were separated at birth. Furthermore, the evil twin had for years lived in squalor with Rin, Yukio's amnesiac wife. Now he assumes his brother's identity, resumes his sordid relationship with Rin while Yukio to live like an animal to pay for the crimes of his family. Tsukamoto brilliantly juxtaposes hyperactive cinematography with opulent backgrounds, lavish costume design and haunting atmospheric music to achieve a result which is both frightening and visually stunning.
