The world’s first Yakuza vampire movie, Yakuza Apocalypse: The Great War of the Underworld, looks to be precisely the sort of madness we’ve come to expect from Takashi Miike. Today we’re serving up another short teaser to sink your teeth into!
Scripted by Yoshitaka Yamaguchi, the flick stars Yayan Ruhian (The Raid) and Hayato Ichihara (All About Lily Chou-Chou).
Akira (Hayato Ichihara) admires Genyo Kamiura, who is the most powerful Yakuza. Genyo Kamiura has been targeted numerous times but has never died. He is called the invincible person.
Because of Genyo Kamiura, Akira enters the world of the Yakuza. His colleagues treat him like an idiot; Akira can’t even get tattoos because of his sensitive skin. Akira becomes disappointed in the Yakuza world because it’s not like what they say in the movies, especially in terms of loyalty and charity depicted of the Yakuza.
An assassin is then sent to take out Genyo Kamiura, whom the killers know is a vampire.
