Directed by Takashi Miike

Japan 2017 125 mins. In Japanese

A brutal gang war hits new lows when it’s revealed that one of the bosses orchestrating the violence is a powerful vampire. When boss Kamiura passes his ancient powers on to one of his underlings chaos reigns, causing a rival syndicate to call in “the world’s toughest terrorist,” which is either a man in a frog suit or some kind of celestial, martial-arts slinging frog monster. “The film is a tooth-rotting, mind-scrambling aspartame rush of nonsense, but its brilliance stems from the director’s flat refusal to distinguish between the sublime and the ridiculous.” – Robbie Collin, The Telegraph.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
