Synopsis

Yukiko went missing as a child. Since then, something has been continually bothering her. She takes part in a group discussion on spiritual issues and a world of madness unfolds, in which they reveal and experience each other.

Program Note

This is a production of Takahashi Hiroshi, a wizard of psychological horror as a J-horror movie brand name, who has participated in the scenarios of Japanese horror drama series such as Ring or Don’t Look Up and produced Kyofu. In a factory which its location cannot be grasped, an experiment about spiritual horror is conducted. The participants of the experiment go around and tell their most fearful moments and dreams. At this process of private and public traumas being revealed, various supernatural and unscientific phenomena appear such as a rapid flow of time, sounds of laughter from someone who does not exist, and phantom. Especially, Yukiko, who will become a mediator of the spiritual area, has the experience of being missing for several months and found when she was young; this disappearance, called ‘kamikakushi’, overtly refers to being hidden in god’s realm in Japan. Whether the extreme and bizarre ‘spiritual revolution experiment’ ended in failure, or whether it successfully set Yukiko free from Kamikakushi is to be judged by the audience. Going beyond simple convention and cliché, the grotesque mise-en-scénes stimulate the audience’s vision and hearing. They also arouse the tremendous amount of fear by maximizing their imagination. This is a masterpiece which dreams to be a revolution of horror movies. (HONG Eun-hwa)
