Absolutely creepy..
18 April 2020 | by azarrudheenrafeeqSee all my reviews

The story revolves around a former detective who try to uncover the mystery behind the 6 years old missing case. The dark and disturbing atmosphere is the major positive thing in this movie. The outline of the story may look alike mediocre killer in lose style movie, but the way the presented the screenplay is really unique. The performance of the actor who played nishino character is really impressive, and other lead actors also done well. The first half of the movie moves like regular mystery flick , but second half of the movie especially last 30 minutes of the movie really make you feel creepy. Watch it if you are ok with disturbing and creepy psychological thriller.
