You can tell that a character's future is looking bleak when his story kicks off with his friends organizing mock auditions to help him scout a wife. When he-widow and producer Shigehiko Aoyama (Ryo Ishibashi) meets the gorgeous, girlish Asami Yamazaki (Eihi Shiina), he's relieved to call off the dogs because he's found the woman of his dreams.

Unfortunately for him, he knows nothing of her shady past, which includes dismembered former acquaintances, dead-end references, and mysterious sacks making moves around her apartment. Before long, she's much closer to a girl that'd make cameos in our nightmares.

The circumstances under which they meet make the twosome uncomfortable to watch long before Yamazaki's true colors are revealed, but once the torture porn gets going, the flick breaks new ground in gross.
