The great Takashi Miike (13 Assassins, Audition, Ichi The Killer) is back with Yakuza Apocalypse, in theaters and VOD on October 9th.
Starring Hayato Ichihara, Lily Franky, Yayan Ruhian and Den Den, Bloody Disgusting gets revenge with this exclusive clip in which a vampire sucks out all the blood of his victim!
“From cult Japanese director Takashi Miike, Yakuza Apocalypse is a martial arts extravaganza and vampire action film. In the film, Yakuza boss Kamiura is a legend. Rumored to be unkillable, the truth is he is a vampire – a vampire yakuza boss!
“Among Kamiura’s gang is the loyal Kageyama. However, the young Kageyama is looked down on by the other yakuzas due to the sensitive skin that prevents him from being tattooed. One day, men arrive from abroad and deliver Kamiura an ultimatum: return to the syndicate he left years ago or die. Kamiura refuses and, during a fierce battle, is torn limb from limb. With his dying breath, Kamiura passes on his powers to Kageyama. As his newfound abilities awaken, Kageyama’s desire to avenge his boss sets him on a violent confrontation with the seemingly unstoppable foreign syndicate.”
One of Japan’s most successful filmmakers, Takashi Miike has directed almost one hundred films. He has been thrilling audiences worldwide with movies such as Audition (1999), Ichi the Killer (2001) and 13 Assassins (2010).
