Hero Hero Ghost Show!: Episode 3 – Versus

()

 

Welcome to Episode 3 of Hero Hero Ghost Show!  This time around, we’re talking Ryuhei Kitamura’s chanbara-inspired bouillabaisse of weirdness, Versus.  Is this the perfect introductory film to Japanese horror?  What’s with the kicking guy?  Is our lead character as feminist as he claims to be?  Also, we talk the origins of the film and why it’s kitchen sink approach to filmmaking may work in its favor!

Big thanks to Mike Maryman and be sure to check out Mike and the rest of the gang at Evil Episodes!

You can see Kitamura’s short film upon which Versus is based here.
