horizontal line

[Available Feb. 27 via streaming on MUBI.] After a tattoo-phobic, Japanese Yakuza henchman (Hayato Ichihara), who is smitten with a sexual assault victim (Riko Narumi), is turned into a vampire by his boss (Rirî Furankî) who was brutally decapitated by a gunslinging, coffin-carrying priest (Ryushin Tei) and his martial-arts killer sidekick (Yayan Ruhian) and vows to avenge his death in Takashi Miike's bizarre, action-packed, humor-dotted, over-the-top, entertaining, surreal, head-scratching, bloody, gruesome, well-paced, nonsensical, love-it-or-despise-it, unpredictable, 2015 comedic thriller, he ends up biting many of the non-Yakuza townsfolk and turning them into bloodsucking vampires while the town is attacked by an hypnotic, inflatable, Godzilla-like frog monster (Masanori Mimoto) and a suicidal man (Makoto Sakaguchi) wielding an axe.
