Masuoka is a cameraman possessed by the craving to understand fear--what it is and where it ultimately leads. He wanders the Tokyo streets, a voyeur, hungrily looking for clues. Obsessing over the haunted expressions of the faces he has captured in his daily filming, in particular a man who committed a grisly suicide on the metro.
He returns to the scene to better comprehend the dead man’s reasoning. Following his final gaze leads Masuoka to a door, an entry into a bizarre, cavernous underworld. Here among the ghosts and the subterranean robots called DEROs he finds a beautiful young girl chained to a rock. Saving her from her imprisonment he takes her home.
But watching her from his web-cam at work each day he begins to suspect there is something truly inhuman about this girl with sharp teeth and who walks on all fours. When he begins to uncover her horrifying secrets Masuoka realizes that he has found the key to gaining the terrible knowledge he so craves.

I have seen this film on countless best Asian horror lists and finally decided to watch it. Besides Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl this has to be the worst Asian film I have ever had the displeasure to watch. If the synopsis seems weird that's because it is and not in a good way-it doesn't really make sense when you watch it. It's a major problem when I have to look up the plot online because I didn't fully understand what was going on. The biggest crime that this film commits is that it's painfully boring-I have always found pacing to be an issue in a lot of Asian horror films but this movie takes it to a new extreme. Nothing really happens until the last 20 minutes of the film and by then I have become so disinterested that I don't even care. There are far better and even mediocre Asian horror films to watch-please don't waste your time and sanity on this atrocity.
