Comments:
The unimaginable happens. Sayuri is pronounced 'dead' by her doctor, but her body continues to function. Her wounds begin to fester and her body begins to rot. Her once loving mother, father and sister are repulsed as their home starts reeking of decomposing flesh. Unable to bear it any longer, they corner Sayuri holding a can of gasoline.... She flees for her life, but is snatched away by a strange man who runs a freak show, where Sayuri is forced to exhibit her putrefied body and dance before an audience of men dressed in black. Isolated in the desolate hills, Sayuri thinks she has escaped them, but she's wrong....

Summary: Shot in deeply contrasted black and white, reminiscent of the silent film era (the soundtrack also conjures up that time), this is J-Horror. Teenage Yuri appears to die of a heart attack, is pronounced dead but her body doesn't act like it. Her parents scold her for not behaving like a proper dead person as her body rots and limbs start falling off. They try to embalm and then cremate her, much to her chagrin.
