Loft is a 2005 Japanese horror film directed by Kiyoshi Kurosawa, starring Miki Nakatani and Etsushi Toyokawa.


Reiko Haruna, a prize-winning writer, moves to a quiet suburban house to finish up her new novel. One night she sees a man in a storage room transporting an object wrapped in cloth. She finds out that he is Makoto Yoshioka, an archaeologist researching ancient mummies, and that object was a recently discovered mummy. Working late on her book, she sees a ghost and finds out that her room once belonged to a woman who disappeared.



Sky Hirschkron of Stylus Magazine gave Loft a "C" grade.[1] However Julien Gester of Les Inrockuptibles titled that the movie had a "disturbing splendor".[2]
