Adapted from Honobu Yonezawa’s popular novel The Incite Mill (ergo the unwieldy hyphenate title), the film is given a very Japanese feel via local characterizations. Western audiences will find it a bit of a stretch khổng lồ empathize with self-abasing women và hyper-assertive males, not lớn mention a nhân vật who wears his emotions on his sleeve và often expresses them in shrieking tones.

Despite the psychological exotica, the film gallops along with brisk cleverness. The set-up is brief và to the point: 10 people have been chosen by a mysterious company khổng lồ take part in a week-long psychological experiment, for which they will be paid a huge hourly wage. Two stretch limos drive them lớn a remote circular structure, named Paranoia House, where the experiment is lớn be conducted. Once inside, the heavy metal doors clang shut behind them.

If the plot sounds vaguely familiar, it is cribbed from Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None, aka Ten Little Indians, in which 10 strangers are assembled on an island under false pretences. Knowing they’re being spied on, but unaware they are on TV, the five men và five women listen to the rules they must follow, while sitting in front of statues in the form of 10 little Indians. For a while, Golden Age detective stories seem khổng lồ be keys khổng lồ unraveling a series of murders committed during the experiment. But it’s a literary red herring, as the only woman who reads books gets bumped off early on.

The anh hùng of the tale is honest young Yuki (Tatsuya Fujiwara), whose frantic pleading with the group khổng lồ trust each other and work together to lớn survive their ordeal falls on deaf ears. Even his love interest, the beautiful innocent Shoko (Haruka Ayase), dodges his sensible suggestions. Everyone has a personal agenda, và the more murders that occur, the more they will be paid. Và even corpses can earn extra money-points in this sinister game.

A nice cảm biến is the evil robot that patrols Paranoia House at night on overhead tracks and unceremoniously eliminates everybody found out of his room after 10. This doesn’t prevent a good khuyến mãi of nocturnal mayhem & hanky-panky from going on, as participants try khổng lồ outwit the robot & kill each other.
