Movie Info

Susumu is a 34-year-old homeless man. One day he met a medical student Manabu who is looking for a participant of his experiment. It is Trepanation which is drilling a hole in the skull. It is said to increase the blood and to bring out a person's sixth sense. Manabu said he will pay 700,000 yen to the participant. Susumu accepts the offer for money. After the operation, he starts seeing distorted humans when using only his left eye. A lady has many legs, a guy has a huge finger, or some of them look animals or robots. Manabu researches and discovers what Susumu can see is homunculus and those distorted bodies are the reflection of their complex and trauma.


Critic Reviews for Homunculus

All Critics (3)

"Homunculus" has some good points, but Takashi Shimizu is definitely past his prime, the adaptation is faulty once more, and the SFX and Go Ayano are not enough to salvage a movie that ends up aggressively mediocre.

I'm not overstating it in saying this borders on nauseating.

The longer the film goes on, the harder it is to say who "Homunculus" is for.
