    WTFffffffff. That looks like a Shaw Bros movie directed by Robert Rodriguez. Or Cronenberg’s THE BROOD re-imagined by Miike. Dude’s some kind of mad scientist (Miike that is).

  2. J says:

    In an interview included on the DVD, Miike described ’13 Assassins’ as “a family film.” I look forward to his description of this one.

  3. Tofu says:

    Knowing Miike, this will play straight as a kids film for 70 minutes, and then the last 10 will be an uncomfortable mature turn filled with sadism & death.

    Even The Great Yokai War started out a bit freaky and Yatterman had some S&M vibes, just from the source material.

    I’ve always found Miike to be a (mostly) complete hack with only 1 or 2 good films to his filmography. Robert Rodriquez is a perfect analogy.

    He’s a prime example of fanboys putting junk on a pedestal just because it’s from someplace exotic. If this shit was from Hollywood people would be giving it as much attention as Bob Clark’s Baby Geniuses.

“Studios treat audiences like lemmings, like cattle in a stockyard. I don’t want to ask actors or anyone else on a movie to work so hard with me if the studios treat us as though we’re making Big Macs. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is not a Big Mac. Gone Girl is not a Big Mac.”

“We’re on our way out. Anybody that doesn’t realize that is looking like it’s Christmas or something. We’re on our way out, as a culture. America doesn’t make anything anymore! The Chinese make it! Detroit’s a great example. All of those cities that used to be something. If you go to a truck stop in Sallisaw, Oklahoma, you’ll probably see the face of America. How desperate we are. Really desperate. Just raw.”
