Port authorities in Tokyo discover huge amounts of human hair plus a dead girls body with shaved head in a ship container. At the morgue where the autopsy is held one of the workers there has a women's hair fetish and soon the body will be moved to his place, where to much of his satisfaction it will start growing hair again. This hair will be sold to beauty salons and will be used for EXTEnsions. Soon those who will get in touch with these extensions will face something nightmarish. Apart from being a standard horror flick for the evils of hair extensions, the film serves as a social comment on the tendency of modern japanese culture to succumb in any kind of trend and, of course, gives a whole new meaning to the term 'hair raising experience' Ιαπωνία / Japan 2007 Εγχρωμο / Color 108' Ιαπωνικά / Japanese Σκηνοθεσία / Director: Sion Sono Σενάριο / Screenwriter: Sion Sono Masaki Adachi Makoto Sanada Φωτογραφία / Cinematography: Hiroo Yanagida Μουσική / Music: Tomoki Hasegawa Μοντάζ / Editor: Junichi Ito Ηθοποιοί / Principal Cast: Chiaki Kuriyama Ren Osugi Megumi Sato Tsugumi
