THE COMPLEX by Hideo Nakata

Nursing student Asuka has just moved into an apartment complex with her parents and her younger brother. On the first night in her new room, she is awoken by a strange scratching sound coming from the apartment of her neighbor, a reclusive old man who has refused all attempts at communication. Concerned over his well being, Asuka enters his home only to find him dead from malnutrition. Worse, it looks as if he had been trying to claw his way into her room. From Shinobu, the handyman who cleans up the old man’s apartment, Asuka learns that there have been a number of strange deaths in the complex over the years. Even the girls at school whisper rumors of it being haunted. When the late night scratching returns, Asuka ventures back into her neighbor’s home and comes face to face with an apparition of the old man! Panicked by the discovery of her apartment emptied and her family gone, Asuka seeks help from Shinobu, who brings in a spiritualist to exorcise Asuka of the evil surrounding her. Hideo Nakata, the godfather of J-Horror, goes back to his roots with The Complex! While reminiscent of Dark Water ( Silver Raven at the BIFFF 2002 ), Nakata’s new flick also drew its inspiration from another masterpiece: Let the Right One In ( Golden Raven at the BIFFF 2009 ). And you all know that Nakata is at his best when he deals with ghosts and wicked minds…
