Gory NSFW Trailer For Takashi Miike's 100th Film, 'Blade Of The Immortal'


Of the apparently 100 films credited to prolific director Takashi Miike, the best are when he's at his most unhinged. And fortunately, the early buzz about his latest, Blade of the Immortal, is that it's as bloody and gory and bizarre as anything he's ever done, and dammit I can't wait. Especially now that we have this NSFW trailer.

The film is based on the epic manga series by Hiroaki Samura, and on the surface you might think it's just another samurai story. But then would Miike even bother? Hell no! The story follows a deadly samurai cursed with immortality until he kills enough people. And dammit, kill and kill and kill he does, all in protection of a girl who has hired him for protection.

Miike has a lot of hits and misses, as anyone would expect from a director who has 100 movies under his belt. But you know what? His movies are NEVER boring. Some may be wild misfires and utter disasters, but they're always interesting to watch. And when Miike is on point he's downright great. Blade of the Immortal opens November 3rd.
