Weird Movie Watch: Yakuza Apocalypse
If you’ve been around the bizarro genre long enough, then you know that Takashi Miike is one of our patron saints. Miike has made a ton of different movies but he’s never afraid to unleash mass cinematic insanity, whether it’s a horror film, a samurai film, or even children’s movies. His latest is Yakuza Apocalypse, a gangster flick involving bloodsucking vampires and an unstoppable frog monster.
And besides a man-sized muppet who can unvelcro his mouth and breathe fire, Yakuza Apocalypse has a badass vampire nerd, a turtle guy, Mad Dog from The Raid, and human babies grown in a garden. It’s one of the best weird flicks you’ll see. Check out the trailer below.
