Overview

Based on a novel by Yutaka Maekawa, Creepy follows ex-police detective and criminal psychologist Takakura (Hidetoshi Nishijima, Dolls), who moves to a quiet suburban town seeking peace and quiet. When a former colleague asks for his assistance on a case involving a disappearing family his investigation leads him to suspect that his neighbour is a psychopath who comes into people’s households and takes over their lives.

With a stunning cast made up of many of Japan’s leading actors including Hidetoshi Nishijima, Yuko Takeuchi (Ring) and Teruyuki Kagawa (Tokyo Sonata), Creepy expertly mixes the genre conventions of the American thriller and Japanese horror to create this breath-taking thriller.
