Brooklyn-based TK Digital Corporation's Japan Flix has released an English-subtitled version of Mitsuhiro Mihara's Watcher in the Attic (Yaneura no sanposha) on iTunes, for purchase or rental. Art Port Inc. (K.K. to Pto) released the movie at the Theater N Shibuya in Tokyo on July 7, 2007; it released Keisaku Sat's Ningen-isu there on June 30, 2007. Both movies are based on eponymous short stories by Tar Hirai (1894-1965) - better known by the pen name "Edogawa Ranpo".

The screenplay for Watcher in the Attic was written by Kish Izuchi (Iduchi Kish). The movie stars Yko Kamon, Shunsuke Kubozuka (Kuboduka Shunsuke), Jin Muraki, Hikari Nagase, Momoko Shimizu, Ryko Yi, Hka Kinoshita (rightmost), and Denden.

Here's a synopsis for Watcher in the Attic from Japan Flix: "On an assignment, journalist Naoko Tomioka visits a secluded house previously inhabited by Gouda, a deceased artist with a cult following. At the house, Naoko interviews its six inhabitants, all family and friends of Gouda's, all with mysterious pasts. Many of them refuse to participate, but Naoko finds an area of the house that was Gouda's secret hiding spot - the attic. Soon, she discovers that from inside the attic, one can uncover the darkest secrets of the people below."
