    • Synopsis
    • Natsumi and Yuri casually bought a video deck in a recycle shop one winter day, and played back the VHS tape in it. Its images were horrifying to behold. Natsumi did watch the images, and from that time onward it was as if she was possessed by a strange phenomenon. Yuri consults with Tokiwa, who is the most powerful spirit medium. He discloses the terrible reality to Yuri, that Natsumi's life will be snatched away "After two days". Tokiwa and Yuri struggle valiantly together to try to save Natsumi.
      Meanwhile, a female high-school student named Suzuka and her family had just moved in a few days earlier, and she develops an interest in the abandoned house across the street. It is rumored that if you enter the house, you will go missing. Although it is supposed to be unoccupied, sometimes there seems to be some kind of presence there. When these two seemingly unrelated incidents become intertwined, the reality of the mysterious house, and the truth behind the inexplicable phenomena occurring around Yuri and Suzuka, are revealed.
