Acclaimed director Kiyoshi Kurosawa, whose credits include the creepy PULSE and the pulse-pounding CREEPY, ventures into dark sci-fi with BEFORE WE VANISH, which receives Stateside release next month. We’ve got the info, the poster and a very cool trailer.

Super LTD brings BEFORE WE VANISH, an official selection of the Cannes Film Festival’s Un Certain Regard section, to theaters February 2. Masami Nagasawa (GODZILLA: FINAL WARS), Ryuhei Matsuda (THE RAID 2), Mahiro Takasugi, Yuri Tsunematsu and Hiroki Hasegawa (SHIN GODZILLA) star; the synopsis: “Three aliens travel to Earth on a reconnaissance mission in preparation for a mass invasion. Having taken possession of human bodies, the visitors rob the hosts of their essence—good, evil, property, family, belonging—leaving only hollow shells, which are all but unrecognizable to their loved ones.”
