It Comes 来る, dir. Tetsuya Nakashima, Japan 2018, 134 min., Japanese with English subtitles, 15

Tahara Hideki (Satoshi Tsumabuki) and Kana (Haru Kuroki) are blessed with a baby girl,  Chisa. Hideki’s life seems to be perfect until one day a visitor to his company leaves him a message with his colleague that mentions “Chisa-san”. His colleague who took the message dies mysteriously – the beginning of the nightmare. Fearing that his family will be harmed, he visits the occultist Nozaki (Junichi Okada) to find out how to break the unknown curse. Learning that the source of the unknown curse is something beyond their imagination, the country’s most prestigious exorcists gather at Hideki’s home.

Director Tetsuya Nakahima is a talented director of dark dramas such as The World of Kanako (2014) and Confessions (2010). It Comes is a deeply unsettling horror which cannot be ruined by simple gruesome imagery, pushing Japanese horror to a new level.
