Get in the Halloween spirit with Cure, a chilling modern classic from Japanese horror virtuoso Kiyoshi Kurosawa. In this hypnotic, meticulously crafted take on the serial killer film, a detective follows a string of grisly, identical murders down a rabbit hole of abject terror and existential dread. Screening in a new 4K restoration as part of Museum Films’ “Two by Kiyoshi Kurosawa” series.
“Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s spellbinding international breakthrough established him as one of the leaders of the emerging new wave of Japanese horror while pushing the genre into uncharted realms of philosophical and existential exploration. A string of shocking, seemingly unmotivated murders—each committed by a different person yet bearing the same grisly hallmarks—leads Detective Kenichi Takabe (Koji Yakusho) into a labyrinthine investigation to discover what connects them, and into a disturbing game of cat and mouse with an enigmatic amnesiac (Masato Hagiwara) who may be evil incarnate. Awash in a mood of hushed, hypnotic dread, Cure is a tour de force of psychological tension and a hallucinatory journey into the darkest recesses of the human mind.” -Janus Films
