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.

“ Creepy uses silence as a tool of terror, following its characters through long, tense scenes where everything’s a little too quiet, and where each creak sounds like a scream.”
- Los Angeles Times

“A spine-tingler about love and death, and the allure of mystery and its perils.”
- New York Times

“Creepy is as sublime as any prior Kiyoshi Kurosawa film.”
- Slant Magazine

"What's the opposite of a jump scare? Director Kiyoshi Kurosawa has mastered it in the superb Creepy, revealing the upsetting details with such slow-build subtlety that you don’t notice your skin crawling until it’s halfway out the door.”
- Village Voice
