“Everyone Should Just Die”

The things we love and treasure are slowly being taken away by something unfair.

This horror-comedy is a remake of “Everyone Should Just Die,” which premiered in 2016, depicting the mysterious fates of the people living in a women-only apartment. A nurse, Aki Hagiya, and the other female residents get involved in a series of bizarre events. Aki herself is troubled by the phenomenon that her mother, who is supposed to be deceased, brings the garbage Aki threw away back to the apartment. Then, on October 31st, as the fireworks light up the skies of Shibuya, in the wake of the unusual excitement of Halloween, the world begins to fall apart.

Based on the theme, “you’re going to die anyway,” this sensational work by the theatrical unit “Usagi Stripe” uses theatrical lies to depict the connection between death and everyday life.
