Product Overview

"Masuoka (Shinya Tsukamoto) is a cameraman possessed by the craving to understand fear. In particular, he obsesses over his footage of a grisly suicide in the subway. Returning to the scene to better comprehend the dead man's reasoning, he opens a doorway into a bizarre, cavernous underworld. Here among the ghosts and subterranean creatures he finds a beautiful, mute girl whom he takes home. As days pass he begins to suspect there is something truly inhuman about this girl. When he begins to uncover her horrifying secrets, Masuoka realizes that he has found the key to gaining the terrible knowledge he so craves... "

Review Directed by Takashi Shimizu (Ju-On, The Grudge), one of the more popular J-horror filmmakers (though certainly not the best), Marebito stars Tetsuo: Iron Man director Shinya Tsukamoto as a freelance news photographer who becomes fascinated with human terror. When he films a man's horrifying suicide, he's certain that such unfortunate souls as the this man see something at the exact moment of total fear. Following up on his theory, he begins haunting the tunnels beneath Tokyo where, he learns, humanoid, blood-sucking creatures called Deros ("detrimental robots") reside. Instead of dealing with the Deros (we think), he finds a nude waif with fierce teeth (Tomomi Miyashita) chained to a rock. As you probably gather, he takes her to his pad and attempts to figure just what she is. As do we - to no avail. The confusion would be perfectly acceptable had the picture crafted a more compelling portrait of its patent themes - modern alienation, voyeurism, and the tricky process of connection - but instead we become bored with it.
