A psychosexual horror with a seam of black comedy lying under its artfully glittering surface, this sadomasochistic sensation dares viewers into a thrilling cat-and-mouse conundrum. Based on a novel by Ryu Murakami, who wrote Takashi Miike's AUDITION, a new father decides to ease his parental stress by killing an anonymous prostitute, but the flaky escort he chooses has her own chilling agenda. With Argento and De Palma homage in plentiful supply, all underscored by vintage Goblin, Ennio Morricone and Bruno Nicolai soundtracks, join THE EYES OF MY MOTHER director Nicolas Pesce on a sleazy voyage through his neo-Giallo fearscape.
