In a Thicket


Directed by Hisayasu Sato
Japan, 1996
Fantasy, Mystery


Sato’s re-imagining of In a Grove, on which Rashomon was based. In this version, instead of a web of lies and agendas, we get a web of desires, perversions like incest, and occult phenomenon like an oracle-demon, hallucinations, and human sacrifice.
