Koichi Takakura (Hidetoshi Nishijima) is a profiler of serial executioners, however the opening scene of Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s strong “Creepy” works backward in that it profiles our hero. As he’s examining the lunatic right now being held in authority, watch his non-verbal communication and listen to the prideful path in which he discusses his own hypotheses about psychopathology.
He’s not detecting the risk. He’s not seeing what’s directly before him. Until it’s past the point of no return. After the horrendous occurrence that takes after, Takakura is compelled to take a holiday, moving to a tranquil, nation home with his better half Yasuko (Yuko Takeuchi), yet he can’t let that profiler side of him go.
