After originating as a smash-hit manga and making the leap to a successful animated franchise, the 'Tokyo Ghoul' story sinks its teeth into live-action cinema with this thrilling adaptation. Quiet and reserved, high school student Kaneki's life is changed forever after he is almost killed in an attack by a flesh-eating "Ghoul" in disguise. Finding himself transformed into a half-Ghoul in the wake of this assault and shunned by his fellow humans, Kaneki is accepted by a group of Ghouls who teach him about their culture and show him how to adapt. Can Kaneki accept a life where he needs to consume human flesh to survive? More importantly, can he learn to live as a Ghoul in an unwelcoming world where the hunter can very quickly become the hunted?
