Smitten with a lonely housewife, a slighted psycho salesman terrorizes her and her young son in this outrageous home invasion classic with an explosive third act that truly needs to be experienced. Produced by the legendary Japanese indie collective, Director’s Company, and even spawned a later sequel directed by the great Kiyoshi Kurosawa.
Unreleased outside of Japan until now, this undiscovered gem celebrating its 35th anniversary is now fully remastered and ready to have some respect put on its name. —Joseph Hernandez
