Our friends at Twitch caught wind of a pretty bizarre Japanese children’s movie that stems from a 1965 Manga from Fujiko Fujio. Directed by Yoshihiro Nakamura, Kaibutsu-Kun opens in Japan this November and features a big-eared kid and his monstrous companions: Dracula, Wolf Man and Frankenstein (played by Satoshi Ohno, Norito Yashima, Ryûhei Ueshima, Choi Hong Man).
Twitch writes: “Kaibutsu first appeared in 1965 as a manga by Fujiko Fujio, the story of a shape shifting boy and his friends Dracula, Wolfman and Franken who travel from Monster Land to the human world proving successful enough that it spawned anime versions in 1968 and 1980 and a live action television version running on Japan’s NTV now. The television cast, anchored by Arashi’s Satoshi Ohno, will be making the move to the big screen in a movie that looks to borrow from and mash together influences from a host of other sources.”
Check out the insane trailer below, courtesy of the film’s official website.
