Rokuroku: The Promise of the Witch
(Dir. Yudai Yamaguchi & Keita Amemiya, 2017, Japan, 92 min)
BUY TICKETS ($12)
Classic Japanese spirits terrorize modern Japan in this absolutely bonkers fright fest co-directed by Yudai Yamaguchi (Meatball Machine, The ABCs of Death) and Keita Amemiya (Zeram).
Structured like an anthology with intermingling segments, Rokuroku features everything from a deep sea kaiju to a cackling disembodied head to a sickle-handed psychopath. A supernatural force hurls schoolgirls off of rooftops. An old man faces the return of a horrific creature from his youth. Childhood friends recall a long forgotten promise that leads them to room 666 of a horrifying hotel.
Stylish, spooky, and just plain strange, Rokuroku is a wild ride through Japanese folklore.
