Recent widower Shigharu is advised by his son to find a new wife. Taking advantage of his position as a film company he stages an audition for prospective partners. Interviewing a series of women, Shigharu becomes enchanted by Asami, a quiet woman, who is immediately responsive to his charms. But soon things take a very dark and twisted turn as we find that Asami isn’t what she seems to be. One of the most notorious J-horror films ever made, legendary filmmaker Takashi Miike twists and turns us through delirious editing and shocking visuals for one of the most depraved nightmares put to screen.
‘A stomach-turning masterpiece.’

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
