Madness, cicadas, and self-destruction are abundant in this brand-new Japanese horror film.
In the relentless heat of the gruelling summer, temperatures soar to blistering levels as cicadas emerge to sing their ear-shattering song. Months of continued exposure is enough to make anyone start to feel a little off. Anyone, that is, except that oddity the locals call ‘the Cicada Man’. Who is that strange man and why is he always walking around with boxes full of live cicadas? More important, what does he do with them? As the heat starts to get to our heroine, and her sanity depletes, real life and delusion begin to mix. Her darkest nightmares seep into our world and she fears the Cicada Man has planted his swarm of insects inside her. She must get them out – at all costs. Thus begins her downward spiral into extreme paranoia and self-mutilation. She just needs to make it through the summer.
FROM THE DIRECTOR,
“It’s crazy to think I’ve been a fan of Unearthed Films for almost 20 years. Even crazier to think my latest film is getting released alongside so many that have previously influenced me. Unearthed Films has introduced me to so many greats, and I couldn’t be happier to be welcomed into their fucked up little family. It’s been a decade since I shot my first film in my mum’s garage, and even longer since I first showcased films on YouTube. Thank you to everyone who has followed me throughout this journey, and greetings to those who will find me through this new release! Bring on the summer!” – Regards, Guy
