I saw this 70's Asian flick by pure chance on IFC or Sundance late one night- really out there and I liked it. I was able to locate a solid bootleg with proper subs since this never received an R1 release.

Got to watch this recently and I gotta say that this is quite a unique film and that it's well worth checking out, imo. The little I'd heard about this movie didn't prepare me for what I saw and for that I'm glad because it probably made the movie all the more better as it exceeded my expectations with it's story, excellent style, and overall craziness. Definitely see this if you have the chance, if you were thinking of picking up the R2 release by Eureka! I'd say go for it!

It is VERY awesome, VERY trippy, and VERY unpredictable. It's a shame this film hasn't received the attention it deserves until only recently. I'm positive Criterion is going to make this a stellar release.

DAMN!!!! You couldn't have posted this a couple of weeks ago!! It just played 10 min. from my house, the last week of January!! Well, I DL'd it from that site and put it on my PSP, so I'll watch it when I'm on the road later this month.

I'm thinking the same thing. Looks weird. Might check it out before I decide to buy it.

Criterion is selling a poster and t-shirt for it, so I think it's slightly more than just a rumor.

The poster and t-shirt are bad ass, but since I haven't seen the film I don't want to run out and buy them. They'll be playing in Chicago at the end of the month, I'll try and go.

Ummm yes and yes!
Had no idea Criterion was handling this one. Will buy the minute it's available.
What I'm REALLY stoked about is the stellar poster up on the Criterion site for the theatrical run. That thing is amazing. I'm gonna frame that right next to my bright yellow Holy Mountain print, I'm sure my wife's gonna just love that

This movie looks neat like a horror art film on acid.

I got on the booking bandwagon with Janus Films just in time and will be screening this as part of the North American tour on August 20th. I can't wait to finally see this film, and on the big screen none-the-less!

Well I drove to Los Angeles by myself to catch this movie. Parking sucked major ass and stressed me out. There was roughly about 40+ people in the theater. I sat in the very first front row. The crowd was very quiet zzzzzzz. The theater had a very small screen and in Full Frame. All I can say after seeing it is the following. I guess I set my expectations way too high. I thought this would be something like Evil Dead etc. The film itself was a very bad corney comedy. There was absolutely nothing redeeming or scary about it. It's a movie you truly need to be loaded to enjoy. Only problem with that is even a pot head would probably not enjoy this one. I wouldn't call this a B movie more like a Z movie. I think the best part of the movie is the Trailer. It pretty much shows you all the good parts. The film makers need to do like Toyota and apologize for making this.
