taiwannoir18

General Guan Yu battles aliens from Mars. Interested yet?

This slowly more widespread 1976 movie The Big Calamity (aka War God) is an event unlike any other from Taiwan. An event that sparks giddiness in even non fans of the men in suits smashing buildings and battling other man in suits-movies. Taiwan was a little Kaiju-engine that could

Japan On Fire 22: Sabu – Kanikosen

jof22

The wildman and acclaimed maker of chase movies with some very surreal and absurd humour continues his more thoughtful and humanistic streak as firmly explored in the dark Dead Run covered last episode and for this one, Kenny B and VCinema’s Coffin Jon will review Kanikosen. Featuring Sabu depicting a mutiny aboard a crab fishing ship, it’s a story that goes back decades and has a streak of real life darkness attached to it as well.

Running Times:
00ms 00s – Intro/ Kanikosen novel and author background
17m 58s – Kanikosen review
