Above is a sales poster for Hideo Nakata's The Complex (Kuroyuri danchi).

The screenplay for The Complex was written by Jun'ya Katô and Ryûta Miyake. The movie stars Atsuko Maeda and Hiroki Narimiya.

Here's a log line for The Complex from the international sales agent for the movie, Nikkatsu Corporation (Nikkatsu K.K.): "More frightening than Ringu. More heart-rending 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 world phenomena."

Here's a synopsis for The Complex from Nikkatsu: "Nursing student Asuka (Atsuko Maeda) has just moved into an apartment complex with her parents and younger brother. On the first night in her new room, she is awoken by a strange scratching sound coming from the apartment of her neighbor, a reclusive old man who has refused all attempts at communication. Concerned over his well being, Asuka enters his home only to find him dead from malnutrition. Worse, it looks as if he had been trying to claw his way into her room. ¶ Asuka learns that there have been a number of strange deaths in the complex over the years from Shinobu (Hiroki Narimiya), the handyman cleaning up the old man’s apartment. Even the girls at school whisper rumors of it being haunted. When the late night scratching returns, Asuka ventures back into her neighbor's home and comes face to face with an apparition of the old man! ¶ Panicked by the discovery of her apartment emptied and her family gone, Asuka seeks help from Shinobu, who brings in a spiritualist to exorcise Asuka of the evil surrounding her. However, as she delves into the girl's predicament, the spiritualist discovers that signs points not to the old man but to a small boy living in the complex with a past as tragic as the one Asuka herself lives in denial of."

Shochiku Co. Ltd. (Shôchiku K.K.) plans to release The Complex theatrically in Japan in May of next year.

BTW, if you haven't already done so, be sure to watch the teaser trailer for Naoyuki Tomomatsu's Rape Zombie: Lust of the Dead 2 (Reipu zonbi: Lust of the Dead 2)!

Above and below are two theatrical posters for The Complex. Also, the official website for the movie is now online.

The Complex is set to have its world première in the Spectrum section of this year's International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR), which runs from January 23rd to February 3rd.

With regard to Asuka's "discovery of her apartment emptied and her family gone" and her tragic past that she "lives in denial of", I hope that there isn't a Shyamalanesque plot twist whereby her parents and/or younger brother were/was never alive in the movie's present...

Those who are interested in The Complex may wish to watch the teaser trailer for Alejandro Hidalgo's Venezuelan horror The House of the End Times (La casa del fin de los tiempos).
