Reed (Christopher Abbott) sets off on a business trip and kisses his wife and baby goodbye. But in lieu of a suitcase filled with clothes, he's packed a toothbrush and a murder kit. He meticulously plans everything out. He checks into a hotel and plans to kill an unsuspecting victim in order to quench his devious impulses. Reed gets more than he bargained for with Jackie (Mia Wasikowska), an alluring call girl who arrives at his room. First, they relax and get in the mood, but when there's an unexpected disruption, the balance of control changes between the two and a feverish nightmare unfolds. Based on the critically acclaimed cult novel by Ryû Murakami, Director Nicolas Pesce (The Eyes of My Mother) blends psychological horror and a neo-noir style that critics are calling "Brutal, sexy and disturbing."- Adam Patterson, Film Pulse
