Takashi Miike – the Japanese master of gore responsible for such classics as Audition, Dead or Alive, Three…Extremes, Visitor Q, Gozu, One Missed Call and Ichi the Killer – is heading back to the genre he abandoned all those years ago.
A new trailer has just been released (via Twitch) for Miike’s film adaptation of Yusuke Kishi’s bestselling 2010 novel “Aku no Kyoten” (aka A Lesson of the Evil). And it expands upon the teaser nicely!
The movie stars Hideaki Ito (pictured) in a role quite a bit darker than what he’s usually known for. He’ll be playing “A teacher named Seiji Hasumi who’s loved by his students and respected by his peers. However, his outward charm masks his true nature. In reality, Hasumi is a psychopath who is unable to feel empathy for other human beings. Specifically, he has a severe antisocial personality disorder. Because of his mental condition, Hasumi chooses to deal with problems like bullying and overbearing “monster parents” the easy way—by systematically murdering his students.”
A theatrical release is slated for November. Head inside to check it out!
