    Sounds interesting enough. Check out the resposes in the bottom of that article it includes pics from the movie. It's also said that the budget for this film is 12mil

    This is a remake of the Yokai Monster films.

    I actually just watched the first Yokai Monsters film the other day, Spook Warfare (aka The Big Spook War), and loved it. Sure, it was cheesy as hell, but that was half of it's charm. I liked it enough to order parts 2-3 after I had watched the 1st. I can't wait to see Miike's interpretation....should be nothing short of fantastic :)

    Hell yeah, this'll be sweet. I had vol. 1, but sold it shortly after my purchase. It was pretty good, but I would rarely ever watch it. Especially now with this! Why would I bother? And who said remakes suck?

    I almost fell out of my chair laughing when I saw that cough!
    I'll see this for sure. I'll give pretty much any Miike movie a chance. I don't like them all but i'll give them a chance.
    ...and Chiaki Kuriyama's in it? :banana:

    I'll have to check out that trailer. I've known about this film for a while now, and I'll admit that Miike doing yokai has me worried that he'll turn it into live-action hentai or something. We'll see. Hopefully, Daiei will also revive their Gamera and DaiMajin franchises, especially with Godzilla going into retirement.

    Anyways, there are reviews for several yokai DVD's up on my site. Check 'em out:

    - Yokai Monsters: 100 Monsters
    - Yokai Monsters: Spook Warfare
    - Yokai Monsters: Along With Ghosts
    - Sakuya, The Slayer Of Demons
    - Sakuya, The Slayer Of Demons (R2 SE)

    The official site is up and running with a couple of trailers. http://yokai-movie.com/index.html

    Just click on the burning flame and then hit the second button on the right hand side of the next screen. You might want to explore the site as well for some interesting monster pictures.

    Just so you guys know, Rue Morgue just did a spread of a few pages on Miike, it made for good reading. He's doing a cameo in the next Eil Roth movie (they're kind of buddies). The more I read about this guy, the more I like him.
