Film Description

Japanese psychological horror in which, in 1923 Tokyo, the landlord of a downmarket boarding house is obsessed with spying on his guests. One night he sees a prostitute brutally murdering her client, and instead of handing her over to the police, he decides that he has found his soulmate.

A beautiful study of voyeurism and murder as an aphrodisiac. Fascinatingly bizarre, it has fur fetishes, and a man disguised as a chair being sat on by his object of affection. Adapted from the masterful horror tales by Edgowa Rampo.
