Detective Takakura quits the police force after a traumatic incident at work. To start fresh, he relocates to a quiet suburb with wife Yasuko and starts teaching at a university. Life at work is pleasant, unlike his former high-pressure job. With time in his hands, Takakura starts helping a former colleague on an unsolved missing person case.
Life at home is uneasy as Yasuko struggles to adjust to their unfriendly neighbourhood. When she finally befriends their socially awkward neighbour, Nishino, the tension and strangeness creep closer into the couples’ lives.
Fresh off Cannes Film Festival with the award-winning drama Journey to the Shore, director Kiyoshi Kurosawa is back in his element with Creepy. He directs a stellar cast who capture the mystery with quiet ferocity and gripping intensity.
