Monster Killer

A promo reel for Takanori Tsujimoto's Monster Killer (Red tears - krui) - a.k.a. "Reddo tizu - krui" (romanized promotional title) - has been added to YouTube. The movie is set to have its world premire at this year's Tokyo International Film Festival (Tky Kokusai Eigasai) - "TIFF" for short - which runs from October 22nd to October 30th.

According to the TIFF website, the screenplay for Monster Killer was written by Tsujimoto (who was also the movie's cinematographer) and Eiichi Yonekawa. The movie stars Natsuki Kat, Yma Ishigaki, Yasuaki Kurata, Karin Yamaguchi, Ayaka Morita, Kji Nakamura, Masahiro Nagai, and Yju Takashima (4th row, 2nd from right). Kurata (of Kurata Promotion Company / K.K. Kurata Puromshon) and Masashi Horiuchi (of Sanada Fudosan Corporation / K.K. Sanada Fudsan) were the planners and executive producers of it. Hiroki Asai was the action director for it. It was scored by Hikaru Yoshida. Yoshihiro Nishimura was responsible for its special make-up effects.

Here's an "introduction" to Monster Killer from the TIFF website: "While investigating a bizarre serial murder case, Tetsuo meets a mysterious woman, Sayoko. They feel a powerful attraction, but... Presented by international action star Yasuaki Kurata."

Here's a brief bio of Tsujimoto from the TIFF website: "Born in 1971. Won many independent film awards before making his commercial film debut Killers (2002) in collaboration with Mamoru Oshii. Specializes in works with stylish action scenes. Contributed to omnibuses Eat and Run: 6 Beautiful Grifters (2007) and KILL (2008), which screened in Tokyo International Film Festival's Japanese Eyes section. Best known for his Hard Revenge, Milly series."

BTW, Nishimura and his Nishimura Eizo Co. Ltd. (Y.K. Nishimura Eiz) - a.k.a. Nishimura Motion Picture Model Makers Group (NMPMMG) - are, in part, producing Takashi Murakami's live-action Jellyfish Eyes (Mememe no kurage), which is now in post-production.

The official website for Monster Killer - a.k.a. "Red Tears" and "Sword of Blood" - is now online. Kurata Promotion is scheduled to release the movie at the Cinemart Shinjuku in Tokyo on April 7th, and at the Cinemart Shinsaibashi in Osaka on April 14th. Distribution rights for it are to be offered for sale by All Rights Entertainment Limited at this year's European Film Market (EFM) in Berlin, which runs from February 9th to February 17th.

Here's a description of Monster Killer from All Rights Entertainment: "A serial killer leaves behind a trail of headless bodies. Hazuki appeals to detective Tetsuo that her missing boyfriend is involved in the case because of a lady who was with him when he disappeared. Hazuki shows him a picture of the lady, Sayoko, and he is attracted to her beauty. Tetsuo unexpectedly runs into Sayoko while investigating the location in the picture. He is fascinated by her, and she is also drawn to the righteous Tetsuo. International action star Yasuaki Kurata presents a real suspense action horror film. The end fight between Natsuki Kato and Yasuaki Kurata is a must see!"
