Horror master Kurosawa Kiyoshi returns to his pet genre with the mystery thriller Creepy, which premiered at the 2016 Berlin Film Festival. Based on a novel by Maekawa Yutaka, the skin-crawling psycho suspense recalls Kurosawa's earlier works like Pulse and Cure in its eerie atmosphere, frightening character studies and masterful build-up of converging mysteries. Having worked together in Mozu, Ryusei Wagon and Double Face, Nishijima Hidetoshi and Kagawa Teruyuki face off this time as a former detective and his Creepy next-door neighbor. The two are joined by the all-star cast of Takeuchi Yuko (The Inerasable), Kawaguchi Haruna (Say "I Love You"), Higashide Masahiro (Gonin Saga) and Fujino Ryoko (Solomon's Perjury).
Criminal psychology expert Takakura (Nishijima Hidetoshi) left the police force under unpleasant circumstances, but he has since started afresh by taking up a university teaching position and moving into a new home with wife Yasuko (Takeuchi Yuko). When his former colleague Nogami (Higashide Masahiro) asks him for help on a six-year-old missing persons case, Takakura obliges and looks for leads from the traumatized young Saki (Kawaguchi Haruna) whose entire family disappeared. Meanwhile, Yasuko tries to befriend the family next door, but they appear unreceptive except for the strange Nishino (Kagawa Teruyuki) who shields his wife and daughter (Fujino Ryoko) from outside contact and seems to change personality from one minute to the next.
