creepyDirector: Kiyoshi Kurosawa | Japan | 2016 | 130 mins

Returning to the genre that made him a cult favourite over the last two decades, director Kiyoshi Kurosawa (Pulse, Cure) is back with Creepy, a masterclass of slow-burn dread and psychological chills.

After sustaining a serious injury at the hands of a deranged killer, police detective Takakura quits the force, moves to a quiet country village and takes a job teaching criminal psychology in the altogether safer confines of the local university. The idyllic lifestyle that he craves is thrown into chaos, however, when Takakura begins to suspect that his new neighbour is a psychopath responsible for a series of unsolved murders and he is soon drawn into a paranoid nightmare that threatens to destroy his entire life.
