Plot – Spoilers:
A Japanese AV star Mai Tsurumi – who stood out in the clutter of her industry – went missing a few years back. Tsurumi had earned fans for her contrasting elegance while performing in niche fetishes like menstrual porn.
Now a couple years later, a female journalist and her crew are making a documentary on the missing actress. Their interest in her case is mostly based on a rumour that Tsurumi disappeared into a snuff film that was later sent to her studio.
Celluloid Nightmares with its tight running time of just over an hour is a gripping watch despite you having probably watched plenty from the genre, including Daisuke Yamanouchi’s other works.
