If you're a fan of Japanese splatter films, then your Thanksgiving just got a lot messier - and zanier - as what we have for you here are the first details on madman Yoshihiro Nishimura's Zombie TV, including several stills and a trailer. Put on a raincoat, and dig in!
Big news has just dropped out of The Profane Exhibit camp! Not only has the team enlisted the services of Grammy Award winning artist Chris Vrenna to score one of the segments, they've added noted directors Jose Mojica Marins (aka Coffin Joe) and Ignacio "Nacho" Vigalondo.
A new day brings us a new update from the hotly anticipated film The Profane Exhibit. Producers David Bond and Manda Manuel report that controversial horror director Uwe Boll has completed his segment of the film.
David Bond and Manda Manuel, producers of the upcoming The Profane Exhibit, have some new info to share on the anthology film. The word we’ve received is that shooting of Yoshihiro Nishimura's segment is complete!
We've been following the progress of upcoming anthology film The Profane Exhibit pretty closely around these parts, and now that word has come that Richard Stanley (Hardware, Dust Devil, The Theatre Bizarre) has joined the team, we're even more excited!
News on the upcoming anthology film The Profane Exhibit continues to pour across my scalpel and syringe-littered desk at an alarming rate. (As a doctor, I keep all the most important tools right at hand, rusty or otherwise). And it seems each time we get an update, it's more impressive than the last. This one is no different.
David Bond and Manda Manuel, producers of the upcoming anthology film The Profane Exhibit, are proud to announce the name of another of the film's directors. And with such movies as Tokyo Gore Police and Helldriver to his credit, this one fits right in.
Yoshihiro Nishimura's Helldriver will be having its New York premiere on Thursday, April 28, 2011, as a very special launch event for the 5th Festival of Contemporary Japanese Film (July 7–July 18, 2011): Japan Cuts and for the New York Asian Film Festival 2011. Director Nishimura and actress Eihi Shiina will both be in attendance.
While the current catastrophe in Northern Japan may have Hollywood pulling movies and rewriting scripts to not potentially offend any sensibilites, it's almost comforting to know in some respects it's still business as usual in Japan, as evidenced by no calls to ban or censor Yoshihiro Nishimura's Helldriver, a splatterfest that begins with Northern Japan going to hell after being showered
Yoshihiro Nishimura, the director of such cinematic insanities as Mutant Girls Squad and Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl, just started filming his latest feature Hell Driver, or Nihon bundan: Heru doraibâ for those purists out there who like their titles nice and long, and we've got your first look.
If there's one thing I know for sure, it's that the Japanese love their biomechanical women! Subway Cinema (creator of the NY Asian Film Festival) is also aware of this fact and strives to bring these borderline psychotic movies to the States in the spirit of cultural exchange. To that end, May 18th sees the coming of RoboGeisha!
