Another adaptation of a Junji Ito manga, this one a 2000 telefilm directed by Higuchinsky (who previously directed the adaptation of Ito's "Uzumaki"). The film was set in a psychiatric hospital where a doctor was treating a man who claimed his nightly dreams were lasting for years and were beginning to change him physically. It was less about horror and more about dreams and obsession. Despite the obvious low budget, Higuchinsky crafted a wonderfully visual film with good acting performances, interesting philosophical concepts, and a surprise ending, all wrapped up in a 58 minute package. Recommended.
