Kiyo (Saya Minami) is a lonely hostess who spends her days propositioning men on the cold streets of Tokyo under the watchful eye of her violent pimp, Tetsuya (Yoji Yamada). One day her luck seems to change when she meets a charming foreigner named Anchin (Kenji Shimada) and a romance blossoms, however this is short lived as Anchin flees Tokyo leaving Kiyo heartbroken and her world begins to fall apart. In her desperation for answers, she turns to a vengeful spirit she has known since birth, leading her on a bloody path to revenge.
The Viper's Hex is a pitch-black drama/horror from the creators of Mondo Yakuza, Under A Kaleidoscope and The Perfect Nonsense. The screening will be held at Lido Cinemas on Saturday, 25h November at 9pm in Lido Cinema, Hawthorn.
