It’s been called “wonderfully perverse” and “one of the best films that has come out of Japan recently”; finally Go Shibata’s Late Bloomer will be hitting DVD via Bone House Asia on March 24th, the company announced today.
Curious? You know you are. Dig some official plot for Late Bloomer: He was disabled with Cerebral Palsy, but all he wanted was to hang out with his friends, just like anybody else. Beer, rock and roll, and women. But when his best friend steals his secret love, his everyday quest for normalcy launches him into a cold-blooded rampage of revenge.
Interesting twist; I have to say I can’t remember the last film to feature a handicapped killing people; usually they’re just overcoming the odds or, in the cast of Friday the 13th Part 2, getting thrown down the stairs.
The DVD will come with a greeting from Shibata-san, as well as some interviews with him and the actors and a trailer gallery. Hit the link below to pre-order Late Bloomer via Evilshop!
