Product Description

The film is set in 1923 in a cheap Tokyo boarding house. The landlord, Goda, roams through the attic, observing the weird lives of his tenants through holes in the ceiling. One day he sees a prostitute murder one of her clients and decides that at last he has found his soul mate... Based on stories by the Japanese master of horror, Edogawa Rampo, the film features some of the most bizarre sex scenes ever, including the story of a man who hides inside a special chair, so that a naked woman can sit on him.

Additional Features

The film is set in 1923 in a cheap Tokyo boarding house. A bored tenant, Goda, roams through the attic, observing the weird lives of his fellow lodgers through holes in the ceiling. One day he sees a mysterious woman murder her lover. He decides that at last he has found his soul mate. But, to be worthy of her, he too must perform a meaningless act of violence.

 

Based on stories by the Japanese master of horror, Edogawa Rampo, the film features some of the most bizarre sex scenes ever, including the story of a man who hides inside a special chair, so that a naked woman can sit on him.

This is the first ever US release of a recognized classic of world horror cinema.

Format: DVD
Though this film, Watcher in the Attic, has received a lot of critical lambaste, I was really surprised by how well made it was. First of all, I love Rampo Edogawa novels. I thought his novel "Japanese Tales of Mystery and Imagination" was amazing, plus this is one of the few films where even though his character is the villain of sorts, his character is still sympathetic. In 1923 Tokyo the landlord of a boarding house spys on those dwelling below beneath his roof.

Though almost all of the characters excluding Minako Sayanomiya/Saburo Gouda and the landlord are two dimensional, it doesn't really hamper the film since it works best as a glimpse into the landlord's tortured and torturous life.

If you're a Rampo Edogawa fan, then you immediately need to get this.
