Bakemono (2024)

In Tokyo, an exasperated woman wheels her suitcase to the AirBnB that she has rented. After entering the apartment, she is surprised by how creepy the location is, yet remains unaware that something lurks within the darkness. That blissful ignorance does not last long, as a loud musical sting plays while the monstrous being strikes. As highlighted by the opening credits, Bakemono is Japanese for monster, broken down by how Bake means changing/transforming, while Mono means thing/creature.
