    A few years ago I caught a showing of The Art of Self Defense on a whim and was completely blown away. I immediately went back in search of Stearns' previous film, Faults (equally fantastic) and have since been eagerly awaiting his next feature since. I didn't even watch the trailer for Dual going in; I knew I wanted to see it no matter what, and was content to leave it at that. Unfortunately it didn't get the local theater…

    Watched during my Summer of J-Horror III.

    Convoluted and weird, but in a cool way. Got downright brutal in places too. It's nice to see something interesting from Shimizu again, cause Howling Village was not it. Supposedly these two are part of a loose trilogy, so I suppose I'll be looking forward to whatever the third film looks like.
