In this disguise she is at first taken for a demon by her daughter.

The two cross paths with the friend of the younger girl's deceased husband, who proceeds to entice the young lady into nightly sessions of sex. The older woman, worrying mostly of her survival, either wants the two to stop for fear of them leaving her entirely out of their lives, or have the "

"22.10 DVD Tyylikästä ja tunnelmallista Jaappanin kauhua. Visuaalisuus on taas varsin komeaa ja laavakuvaa osataan käyttää, mutta mitäpä uutta siinä nyt olisi, kun ottaa vuosikymmenen huomioon. Pidin enemmän kuin Kuronekosta."
