The Complex

One ageing apartment complex…
One girl’s haunting nightmare

THE COMPLEX

Available on DVD from 27th January 2014
More frightening than Ring, more heart-thumping than Dark Water. His first true horror film in almost a decade, THE COMPLEX marks director Hideo Nakata’s return to the genre he turned into a worldwide phenomenon, available on DVD from 27th January 2014.

Nursing student Asuka (Atsuko Maeda) is awoken by a strange scratching sound coming from the apartment next door. After discovering her elderly neighbour is dead, she is shocked to learn that a number of strange occurrences and deaths have plagued her apartment complex. Things get worse when the scratching returns, her family begins behaving oddly and she is threatened by an apparition of the old man from next door. With only a cleaning man and a ten-year old boy on her side, Asuka faces a race against time to escape becoming  the next victim of the complex…

Working from the idea of “a nation of lonely souls,” director Nakata utilises the unusual architecture of a decaying Japanese housing complex, where buildings come together with an odd, disconcerting symmetry and no one knows exactly who lives next door. Unnerving and chilling yet ultimately moving, THE COMPLEX is a Japanese horror modern classic that is sure to delight fans of the genre when it’s released on DVD this January.
