A wheelchair-bound boy (Hirohito Honda) is tormented by a ghostly young mute girl (Naoko Mori) and her sadistic grandmother (Yoshiko Shiraishi) in this terrifying cult horror film from director Shugo Fujii. Bereft of his mother, ignored by his father and brother, and nearly smothered to death by his overprotective older sister, Yasu spends most of his days bound to his wheelchair in the confines of his family's suffocating home. When young Yuki and her seemingly harmless grandmother, Chiyo, mysteriously appear at the door and move in to Yasu's home, his suspicions about them fall on deaf ears. Tortured nightly both mentally and physically by the deadly duo, Yasu desperately tries to convince his family of Yuki and Chiyo's evil intentions before their horrific reign of terror consumes them all.
