¡QUÉ HORROR! 2012
Candidate # 11
Loosely based on actual Japanese serial killer cases, Sion Sono’s Tsumetai Nettaigyo is an excellent and sordid piece that chronicles the manner in which an unassuming tropical fish store owner is dragged towards dark and violent depths due to a chance encounter with a rival pet store owner.
Makes for an interesting but rather heavy double bill with fellow ¡Qué Horror! 2012 candidate, Snowtown.
