Reed says goodbye to his wife Mona and claims to be taking off on a business trip, but instead checks into a hotel with the intent to kill an unsuspecting victim. When he’s confronted with an alluring call girl with her own dark intentions, both are consumed by a twisted game of cat and mouse.

Stunningly realised this short and sharp serial killer black comedy is archly weird and draws on numerous influences – its source novel by Ryū Murakami, its Euro-sleaze overload soundtrack – but is entirely its own, freaky beast.
