Genres: horror
Plot Summary: Life could be better for shy, anxious university student Rin. The apartment she has rented is hardly the sunny palace the rental listings suggested. The housing complex is rundown, grim and haunted by troubled souls lurking in dark corners. Ghastly crimes are occurring in the vicinity. And a grinning stranger makes his unsettling presence known. Beyond all this, Rin is coming to realize that something even more sinister is manifesting itself, something at the cursed crossroads of mythology, monstrosity and medical science. Determined to find out more, Rin visits the library, where she meets a sympathetic young staffer. But what she learns does not begin to put her mind at ease.

MORE ABOUT ARAGNE: SIGN OF VERMILLION
Aragne: Sign of Vermillion hails from the mind of Saku Sakamoto, an animation veteran who cut his teeth on fan-favorites like Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence.

Sakamoto served as Aragne’s creator, screenwriter, director, music composer, and one-man animation army in an effort to challenge himself as an artist. Sakamoto is known for his unique visual aesthetics and creativity, and his work on Aragne shows why he’s become known as the “transcendent painter.”

Sakamoto funded his experimental indy project through a successful initial run on Kickstarter, which was backed by the likes of Takashi Shimuzu (creator of The Grudge ). The film made its world premiere at the Fantasia International Film Festival in 2018.

“Rin’s new apartment building is a far cry from the sunny, idyllic photos from the rental brochure. Instead of offering sanctuary from a dangerous world outside, it oozes decay and dread. Residents exhibit unsettling, peculiar qualities and grotesque eruptions. Sinister forces seem to lie around every corner, and if Rin wants to survive, she will have to discover the terrifying truth — one she has kept buried within…”

A word of warning, horror fans: You may be watching in the safety and comfort of your own homes, but this is one flick you’ll want to watch with the lights on.
