Film Series: Yakuza Apocalypse

2015. Japan. Dir: Takashi Miike. With Hayato Ichihara. 115 min.


Prolific madman Miike’s (Ichi the Killer, Audition) chaotic gangster-horroraction-satire follows a yakuza who turns vampire when bitten by his decapitated boss. He faces increasingly bizarre foes, including an assassin in a cotton frog costume who seems to be the harbinger of the entire world’s doom. Don’t think too hard about all this; just watch and enjoy.
