In ""Rokurokubi,"" a man who has the demonic ability to stretch his neck to incredible lengths tries to save a marriage built on secrets. The recently dead find their footing in ""The Inn of the Dead's Orientation for Being a Japanese Ghost."" In ""Girl Zero,"" a couple navigates the complexities of reviving their deceased daughter via the help of a shapeshifter.
