Based on the manga by Kazuo Umezu "Tamami: The bay's Curse (Akanbo Shojo)" tells the story of Yoko, a 15 year-old girl who is reunited with her long lost parents in their huge Western-style mansion, but she soon finds out that she's not the only child in the house. Her deformed sister Tamami is murderously jealous that Yoko has been born beautiful. This one is brought to the screen by "Battlefield Baseball" and "Meatball Machine" director Yudai Yamaguchi.

Noisy Requiem - Yoshihiko Matsui (1988)

Former colleague of punk rock director Sogo Ishii, Yoshihiko Matsui delivered a postcard from hell with his shocking 1988 film "Noisy Requiem". Set in the rundown Kamagasaki district of Osaka Matsui shoots the story of Makoto, a crazed killer using gritty, guerilla tactics. Legendary avant-garde director Shuji Terayama said of "Noisy Requiem" "It would be a scandal if this script were actually to be made into a motion picture."
