The cast includes Hidetoshi Nishijima, Teruyuki Kagawa, Yüko Takeuchi, Haruna Kawaguchi, and Masahiro Higashide. Not only has it played at numerous fests, but the film has received some great reviews so far. One review on ScreenAnarchy says "it's an example of a master attempting a new direction -- in the form of a good, old-fashioned, bloody, spirited thriller." This definitely does look creepy. That guy's smile is the freakiest part about it. Have a look.
