Like many young married couples, Yoshiaki and Keiko have problems managing their relationship and love. With this couple, however, marriage counseling may not be enough.
Yoshiaki is going through some changes. Not the type that is symptomatic of a midlife crisis or a loveless marriage. Seizures, speaking in tongues, and the occasional protrusion of monstrous appendages have become a near-daily occurrence for Yoshiaki. Keiko deals with having to commit either to his imprisonment in the mental health system, or to become an unlikely accomplice in his need to kill and to aid in his transformation into something she is not fully aware of.
“Stand by your man” takes on an entirely new meaning in this thoroughly entertaining journey into the human, err, inhuman condition. The ultra-low budget shocker from Hajime Ohata is a brisk, no nonsense, and shockingly awesome look into the limits of love. –Phillip Lorenzo
