This satirical murder mystery pits a woman who is the epitome of glamour (played by Haruko Wanibuchi) against a clever murderer during a holiday stay at a strange ghostly mansion. Seven young women, who have chosen as nicknames the brand names of much-advertised consumer products, begin to disappear in a decidedly suspicious manner. Are they fashion victims? How else can one explain the eerie coordination between their pastel outfits and the pastels of the rooms in which they appear? It is up to the heroine -- whose every screen appearance is heralded by special lighting, gentle breezes, and a soft camera focus -- to find out what is going on.

This movie is SUCH a head trip! It is a simple plot about a young girl who wishes to visit her mother's old home with friends. Mayhem, blood, VERY bizarre scenes, Japanese school-girls and a little nudity ensue.If you have NEVER taken a drug your entire life, or would like to know what it feels like to have a bad acid trip, watch this film!
