Takashi Shimizu shot this film in just eight short days, working on the project in between the time he created Ju-on: The Grudge and then worked on its North American remake The Grudge.

The horror flick centers on a freelance cameraman named Masuoka (Shinya Tsukamoto). He is obsessed with fear and video, and has his own apartment under surveillance from within. Additionally, he carries a mini-camcorder with him everywhere he goes, and has somehow gotten himself plugged into random cameras that are scattered throughout Tokyo. As he weaves his way from scene to scene, what he is really searching for is a scene that will truly portray fear in all its sublimity.

While exploring the subways one day, Masuoka sees a peculiar suicide. Apparently, the victim has seen something only visible to him. That something is so terrible that the man stabs himself in the eye. Masuoka becomes obsessed with discovering what the man saw, and heads underneath the city, where he finds a strange netherworld where urban legends survive. (Kim Hollis/BOP)
