Sakebi

Synopsis: A detective investigates a series of murders. A possible serial killer might be on a rampage, since they all are in the same vicinity and by the same method, but as the evidence points toward the detective as the prime suspect, a ghost in red follows him, and he begins to question his identity. His realization of what seems to have really happened results in something much more sinister and larger in scope, and it leaves his psyche scarred.

That earthquake was pretty bad.

Yeah...

I'm heading out.

Yeah?

I'll come back.

Okay.

- Bye.

- Bye.

Hey, over here.

What's all this muck?

Must've liquefied in this morning's quake.

Right.

Either a thief or a rapist

No, no evidence of that.

Brought it from elsewhere to dispose of it?

I wonder...

Hey.

Found any footprints or Tire tracks yet?

No, not yet.

If it was dumped before it liquefied...

All that evidence is gone.

That's unfortunate.

Is this salt?

Huh?

It's salt.

Are all the puddles around here

filled with saltwater?

Yes, they were in such a rush

to build apartments,

they just finished the landfill.

I see.

Thanks.

What is it?

Water from the corpse's mouth.

What a way to go.

Yoshioka, we're heading back.

Okay.

Got the coroner's report...

Drowned to death,

and in saltwater.

I see.

Of all places.

Yeah...

What is this?

Hey, Harue, it's me.

Listen...

I have a really stupid question...

You know my black coat?

You know, I bought it at

City Mart last year?

Do you know what happened

to the middle button?

No, it's missing,

it's gone.

Who's there?

Who's there!

Police!

I know you're there!

Who are you? Get out here!

Sakurai

Got a bag for personal effects?

Yes, there should be one around here

Here.

Send it over to the lab

Yes

What is it?

I found it at the scene yesterday

I stuffed it in my pocket,

forgot to send it to the lab.

Huh...

Hey...

This button's from a trench coat.

What?

I have one just like it,

I bought it at City Mart.

I'm not interested in your opinion.

Just get it to the lab.

Yes.

This is...

a blown-up photo of F18's fingernail.

F18?

F for female...

And the recent female corpse

is our 18th ...

unidentified body this year.

Right.

And we detected fingerprints

that don't belong to F18's corpse.

Meaning, the suspect's?

That I don't know, but the prints...

probably got there after the corpse's

estimated time of death.

We're ready.

Can I start matching the prints?

Please.

I've got a match.

I'll display it.

It's this person.

What?

What is this?

This system registers

officers on our force, too?

Yes, just in case.

Yoshioka...

Did you touch the body

without gloves again?

Oh, I understand.

Thanks for the effort.

Not at all.

Who the hell... are you?

I'm seeing things.

Say...

look, there's another empty lot over there.

Yeah?

What was there before?

Um, what was it?

An apartment building?

No, I can't remember.

All this construction and destruction...

A few more earthquakes

like the other day...

and this whole area will just

slide back into the sea.

It's possible...

But maybe that's what people really want.

Back when I took the ferry from

Kawasaki to Ariake station...

The ferry? Oh, 15 years ago...

Yeah?

I remember seeing a pier...

from the ferry deck every morning.

I have no idea where that would be now.

Of course not, that was 15 years ago

They just kept enlarging the landfill...

and we all used to think

they were building...

some futuristic city.

You're right...

But their plans failed.

A big disappointment...

Just like the future.

Are you nervous?

Huh?

What about?

I may not be abIe to visit for a while

Yeah?

Maybe a week or two...

All right.

I'll call when I can make it again.

Okay.

See you.

Yeah.

Dr. Sakuma, we're about ready

for the operation.

Okay, I'll be right there.

Please.

Doctor, the anesthetics

you ordered are here.

I'll take them.

Sure.

Be careful, an overdose will...

temporarily paralyze your patient.

Yup.

Dr. Sakuma, you have a visitor.

Ask them to wait.

I think it's your son.
