The Legacy of Dr. Death – BLACK FILE – is based on the award winning novel The Legacy of Dr. Death (ドクター・デスの遺産/Doctor Death no Isan) by Shichiri Nakayama. The adaptation was directed by Yoshihiro Fukagawa.
The movie follows two detectives as they hunt a suspected serial killer. When a series of suspicious deaths prompts an investigation, Detective Hayato Inukai and Detective Asuka Takachiho lead the investigation. The thing the victims have in common? Each was suffering from a terminal illness.
The investigation reveals the existence of a mysterious person called “Dr. Death” who performs euthanasia upon request. The case becomes increasingly more complex as the detectives close in on their suspect. As the line between the police and criminal blurs, several questions remain. Is Dr. Death a serial killer? Or a savior helping patients die without suffering? Are these cold-blooded murders? Or acts of assisted suicide?
The Legacy of Dr. Death -BLACK FILE- is set for release on November 13th, 2020. Get the latest updates on the movie’s web page and Twitter.
