St John's Wort Film Poster


Japanese horror that blurs the boundaries between the genres of film and video game. Nami (Megumi Okina) has been creating artwork for a new video game based on images she's been seeing in her dreams. With one of the game producers, Kohei (Yoichito Saito), she travels out to an abandoned house that she has recently inherited from her estranged father. As the pair explore the old mansion, filming their expedition with a digital camera and beaming the results back to their company as they go, they make a series of horrifying and grisly discoveries - and also begin to realise that they themselves are being watched by a mysterious and malevolent presence through surveillance cameras in every room of the house.
