Black Cat Mansion
In this non-linear ghost story that mixes black-and-white and colour footage, Dr Kuzumi and his wife Yoriko relocate from the city to the countryside for a healthier environment to help cure Yoriko’s illness.
Not long after moving into the old mansion that serves as their new home and clinic, Yoriko has uneasy feelings about her new abode which are soon confirmed by frightening apparitions of a haggard old woman.
As the visitations become more frequent and threatening, the couple learn about the mansion’s violent history and a curse that was placed on Yuriko’s ancestor.
