Brief Summary

Based on the same ancient folktale that inspired Kihachiro Kawamoto’s DOJOJI TEMPLE (1976), Joe Hsieh’s unsettling film (realized in a striking black/white/red color scheme) tells of a married travelling salesman who stops at a seaside inn for the night, only to have the landlord’s strange daughter fall in love with him instantly. But when he rejects her, she vows revenge.
