[Fantasia '12] Japananimation Horror ‘Asura’ Heads To Hell

ASURA - poster

The 16th annual Fantasia International Film Festival is gearing up to take Montreal by storm with three weeks of inspiration and thrills starting July 19 and running all the way through August 7. Yesterday we revealed the full Second Wave announement that included gems such as Sleep Tight and A Fantastic Fear of Everything. Now we’re revealing new imagery from a handful of titles…

Out of Japan comes Keiichi Sato’s animated horror Asura, which now has a poster for the Canadian premiere.

Over forty years since it came into being, Akiyama’s “Ashura” remains a raw and affecting action-horror-tragedy, and its potency is only further amplified in this new anime. Keiichi Sato, director of TIGER & BUNNY and KARAS, oversees a masterful blend of digital animation and handcrafted artwork spiked with startling fights and chases and flashes of fearsome beauty. Vivid and intense, ASURA is a journey through hell not soon forgotten.

    It’s not “Japanimation”, it’s ANIME! Please let’s not make this mistake again. It was okay in 1995, but we should all be a little more knowledgeable towards these things. Sheesh.
