Description

Kiyoshi Kurosawa, who made his name with classics Cure and Pulse, gets back to his roots by putting the thumbscrews to his audience with Creepy, a spine-tingler about love and death, the allure of mystery and its perils. A year after a botched negotiation with a serial killer turned deadly, ex-detective Koichi (Hidetoshi Nishijima), and his wife Yasuko (Yuko Takeuchi) move into a new house with a deeply strange new neighbor (scene-stealing 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. Creepy is based on an award-winning novel by Japanese master of suspense Yutaka Maekawa. Scary as hell, the film supplies a headlong rush of tension and cruelty all the way to a gratifying final payoff.
