This presentation will discuss scopophilia and claustrophilia as two predominant horror themes in Rampo’s fiction writing and their adaptation in the Japanese film and art worlds. Jacobowitz argues that he used these drives for visual pleasure and a love of coffin-like, enclosed spaces to achieve something closer to what his contemporaries, the Surrealists, regarded as a bridge between reality and imagination toward a more pure expression of the unconscious mind. We will explore his “Stalker in the Attic” (1926) and the film The Watcher in the Attic (1976) directed by Noboru Tanaka, the omnibus film Rampo Noir (2005), and Suehiro Maruo’s graphic novel The Strange Tale of Panorama Island (2010), among other works.
