Kiyoshi Kurosawa, who made his name with classics Cure and Bright Future, gets back to his roots by putting the thumbscrews to the audience with his latest, Creepy. A year after a botched hostage negotiation with a serial killer turned deadly, ex-detective Koichi (Hidetoshi Nishijima), and his wife move into a new house with a deeply strange new neighbor (Teruyuki Kagawa). His old cop colleagues come calling for his help on a mysterious case, which may be related to the strange goings-on next door, in this insidiously-constructed narrative that braids plot twists on top of plot twists and shock on top of shock.

"Ostensibly a character study of skin-crawling weirdness, the film finds the Nipponese chiller-maestro exploring his favorite themes of familial discord and communication breakdown."
- Variety

"In Creepy…Kurosawa is a masterful filmmaker.”
- Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com

"Masterful...grows a sense of unease throughout. I was completely enthralled.”
- Mike Hanson, Horrorbuzz.com

"...Not only amply merits its name, but would make Norman Bates scratch his head at the sheer weirdness of what goes on here behind closed doors."
— Jonathan Romney, Screen International
