After six months abroad, Kazuhiko (Atsuo Nakamura) shows up at his fiancée Yuko's (Yukiko Kobayashi) doorstep - only to learn from her mother (Yoko Minakaze) that the girl has died in a carcrash two weeks ago. Kazuhiko stays over night - and actually sees Yuko while visiting her grave. She begs him to kill her, but ultimately ...

Keiko (Kayo Matsuo) is worried about her brother Kazuhiko, who hasn't come back from visiting his fiancée in eight days, in fact he hasn't even called ... so she persuades her boyfriend Hiroshi (Akira Nakao) to accompany her to Yuko's place to find out what exactly is going on. Once there, the two learn that Yuko has died, and Kazuhiko has left a week ago - but they are not convinced, and staying over night, Reiko actually sees Yuko ...

The next day, Reiko Hiroshi try to figure out if Yuko has really died - but every lead they follow seems to suggest just that - until Hiroshi meets a gravedigger who offers to dig up the coffin to make totally sure ... and while the coffin contains nothing but a doll, the gravedigger is killed by the real Yuko (or her spirit or her vampire self or ...).

Reiko meanwhile has gone back to Yuko's mother to so some investigating - but is soon locked in and sedated by family doctor Yamaguchi (Jun Usami). Hiroshi eventually arrives at Yuko's place and manages to free Reiko, and together the two even find Hiroshi - quite dead - and Yuko - quite creepy.

In the finale, Hiroshi and Reiko are held by Doc Yamaguchi at gunpoint, who only noe gives up the whole secret of Yuko: She was his child with Yuko's mother from a rape, and when Yuko was bro9ught back home badly injured after the carcrash, he hypnotized her into becoming a vampire to save her life, but saw to it that she was officially pronounced dead (after all, he is a doctor). Enter Yuko, who now quickly kills the good doctor, but right after that, she dies and quickly decomposes, because she was under Doc Yamaguchi's spell and could only be released with his death.

 

Nice and moody ghost-/vampire-story, not entirely perfect and a little far-fetched storywise (even for a ghost-/vampire-story), but atmospheric enough to easily make up for its shortcomings. No masterpiece, but totally watchable.
