MAREBITO

(2004) dir Takashi Shimizu w/Shinya Tsukamoto, Tomomi Miyashita [92 min; Digital]
This insane amalgamation of Lynchian weirdness, ancient Lovecraftian mysteries, and Japanese horror is a truly unique film. A filmmaker (Tsukamoto), on a quest to uncover the meaning of fear, discovers a girl chained to a wall in a mysterious underground city. When he takes her home, however, it appears that she is something other than human. Adopting her as his pet, the filmmaker must go to increasingly desperate extremes to care for the creature.

“Reaches a level of insanity so unhinged and dispassionately wretched that it defies description.” – Sean Axmaker, Seattle Post-Intelligencer

“Easily one of the most eerie, twisted, unsettling and original horror movies in recent history.” – Bloody Disgusting
