    • A remake of the film by same name, based on a short story by the legendary Japanese master of horror, Edowaga Rampo.
      Set in 1923 in a low-rent boarding house in Tokyo, the movie follows the exploits of the sleazy tenant who peeps on his neighbors through holes in the ceiling from the attic, spying on their most intimate and occasionally bizarre private moments. When he witnesses a woman murder her lover in the heat of passion, he realizes that he has found his soulmate, as he too has had murderous impulses.
