A next-generation horror film by the master of Japanese horror, Hideo Nakata, who brought us countless hits such as The Ring, the quintessential J-horror film that saw a remake in Hollywood, and Stigmatized Properties, the number one box office horror hit of the 2000s in Japan. Set in an actual forest said to be rife with supernatural phenomena, this next-gen horror film is based on witness accounts of people who saw “It” and the protagonists’ encounter with the mysterious “It.” Come see with your own eyes what “It” is!
- 38-year-old Junichi Tanaka (Masaki AIBA) runs a farming business by himself in a rural town at the foot of the mountains, when one day, he ends up having to take care of his ten-year-old son Kazuya, who had been living with his mother after Junichi’s divorce. Right around the time when Kazuya comes to his house, supernatural phenomena start tormenting the family—strange sounds, a murder of crows, flashing lightbulbs, and the feeling of someone’s presence. Meanwhile, mysterious deaths and disappearances start to occur in the forest, where Junichi eventually witnesses “IT”—something that is clearly neither man nor animal. Just what is “IT”?! Junichi, Kazuya, and his schoolteacher Eri (Honoka MATSUMOTO) get caught up in the string of mysterious events, but that is only the beginning of the unspeakable terror!
