dir. Hiroshi Katagiri, Japan/Saipan/USA, Horror, 106 mins.


Paulina and Tyler visit Saipan to scout locations for their company’s newest resort. After finding what was seemingly a perfect location, they discover a hidden cave on the property. They decide to explore it, enlisting the help of Alan, their location coordinator, and his assistant Pepe.

The cave turns out to be a long-time abandoned Japanese military base. It dates back to WW2, and unbeknownst to them - earlier. As they move forward, they encounter several dried up corpses, but they are undaunted; their curiosity outweighing their fear... but not for long.

With Doug Jones (Pan’s Labrynth, Hellboy) as the creature actor, this is a strong debut feature film from sculptor and costume designer Hiroshi Katagiri (The Hunger Games, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Looper).
