Discover a terrifying new world on our doorstep with a gripping, gory horror based on the best-selling manga. Anime fans and scream junkies alike will savour a twisted dish where the line between good and evil isn’t just blurred, but smeared in blood.
In modern day Tokyo, society lives in fear of Ghouls: creatures who look exactly like humans – yet hunger insatiably for their flesh. None of this matters to Ken Kaneki, a bookish and ordinary boy, until a dark and violent encounter turns him into the first ever Ghoul-human half breed. Trapped between two worlds, Ken must survive the violent conflicts of warring Ghoul factions, while attempting to learn more about his powers.
