    When maverick director Miike Takashi unleashed this stylish slice of extreme cinema upon a unsuspecting audience, few where ready for what they were about to experience. Since then, this twisted vision of a hell on earth has become a notorious, critically acclaimed classic that has to be seen to be believed.

    Following his son's advice, widower Shigeharu Aoyama decides that it's time to look for a new wife. By devising a plan to hold auditions for the part of a female lead in a non-existent production, he uses his professional position to track her down. Among the many applicants, he is struck by the mysterious charm of Asami, a quiet 24-year old woman, and asks her for a date.

    Finding that Asami is responsive to his attentions, Aoyama becomes convinced that she is the woman for him. But when he asks her to accompany him on a romantic holiday, things take a dark and disturbing turn. Soon Aoyama will discover that there is a side to Asami that he could never have imagined, even in his most depraved nightmares.
