One afternoon, he witnesses the wealthy Lady Minako (Junko Miyashita), having a sexual encounter with one of the tenants, whose fetish is to dress up as a clown. Fully aware that she is being watched, Lady Minako kills her lover.
Goda, conscious that Minako is aware of a witness to her crime, does not go to the police. Instead he takes up the opportunity to kill another lodger himself. Soon the two meet and a deadly trust is born.
Watcher in the Attic is based on a novel by the Japanese autor and critic Taro Hiral, better known as Rampo Edogawa. Rampo was an admirer of western mystery writers such as Edgar Allen Poe. His pseudonym is actually a Japanese rendering of Poe’s name. Like Poe’s works, Watcher in the Attic is a tale of mystery and macabre.
