    Ikki Kajiwara's operatic story gets the Miike treatment with musical numbers, japanese pop songs oldies and lot of colors. All the characters are basically larger than life cliches, yet Miike makes all this work. It does drag in some parts and the story can get a bit sketchy, but in Miike you should trust, and you will get your fun.

    Fascinating atmospheric horror that feels so ahead of it's time. Ahead of most horror films made in America at the time, very much in the vein euro gothic horror. The closest i could think in terms of mood and framing will be Mario Bava. It's an effective slowburn horror tale that plays tricks with the audience, in a clever way. Never showing any contempt for the viewer. It's one of those few movies that truly feels that it fell from another dimension. Deserves a criterion BR pronto.
