Not just another Japanese horror movie?
Remember the director behind the first Sasori films, with actress Meiko Kaji as the silent & fearless female prisoner? With some stunning & stylish visuals, incredible ideas & great use of colors…? Well, that’s Shunya Ito. And basically, these are the only films he directed that are actually available in the West. Quite frustrating.
Enough good reasons to check out the horror film Curse of the Dog God, which confirms Shunya Ito’s visual craziness & talent. Here, after destroying a small shrine in a rural village, a mining company provokes the wrath and the curse of the Dog God. Which is directly affecting one of the employee, who marries a young woman from this village. But more important than the story, the experience. Seems to be like Nobuhiko Obayashi’s psychedelic film House.
For your information, the film is unofficially available with english-subtitles.
