A waking nightmare crawling with sinister supernatural insects...

The Midnight Specials are back at the Annecy Festival for a handful of late-night screenings targeting seasoned audiences. Daring, off-beat, revealing… enjoy this year's program packed with a spicy selection of films!

The first feature film by Saku Sakamoto, well-known for his digital effects work in Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence, might very well be the next film to haunt your sleepless nights…

In a truly ominous and grim setting, follow Rin, a young girl who lives in a rundown housing complex that is the frequent scene of horrendous crimes, a refuge for the darkest secrets, and a hideout for the most troubled souls. What if the building is cursed? What if it is in this very place that supernatural insects have decided to reveal themselves?

Arachnophobes beware, this movie will send chills up your spine!
