Based on the bestselling novel by Ryu Murakami and directed by master of the extreme, TAKASHI MIIKE (13 Assassins, Ichi The Killer), Audition is as shocking as it is disturbing and remains one of the best and most influential horror films of all time.

A psychological horror that explores the dark side of love and obsession. Lonely widower, Aoyama (RYO ISHIBASHI - The Grudge) is persuaded by his colleague, Yoshikawa (JUN KUMIMURATO - Kill Bill) to hold a fake audition for a new wife, disguised as a casting for a movie. He becomes smitten with Asami (EIHI SHIINA - Tokyo Gore Police), a mysterious woman who seems to be the perfect match for him. However, as he pursues this relationship, Aoyama discovers that Asami has a twisted and violent past that haunts her present. He soon finds himself trapped in a nightmare of torture and deception, as Asami reveals her true nature in a finale that will have you squirming.
