龍宮之使 Necronomicon: evocative magic
Ryūgū no tsukai nekuronomikon evokatibu majikku
Right before World War II, in an imaginary town in Japan called “Innsma,” three men, completely driven by greed, scramble for a box containing the Necronomicon. They did not know what a horrifying outcome there would be… This is the first Japanese movie based on the dark fantasy “Cthulhu Mythos” by H.P.Lovecraft, created from a unique Japanese perspective. This sad fantasy movie depicts the karma of human beings.
