Experimental short film depicting the life, perhaps real, perhaps a dream, of a young girl named Emi. Emi travels to the city where she encounters her counterpart, Sari, and falls in love with…a vampire?
This 1966 experimental film by Nobuhiko Obayashi exhibits the bravura visual style and unique approach to horror that would bring the filmmaker’s later films, such as HOUSE, international attention.
