The fact that Takako Chigusa who fighted a rapist, a guy so much bigger than her who also had better weapon, with her nails and teeth (literally) until the end even when she was injured is dead when noriko who was complaining ALL THE FREAKING BOOK FOR A SHOT IN HER LEG survived enrages me
The fact that Shingi Mimura who just not only hacked TWICE the goverment system, discovered the mic on the necklaces and almost blew away the school died when noriko who spent a big part of the book half unconscious survived enrages me
The fact that Shogo Kawada who CAME OUT WITH ALL THIS PLAN AND KEPT NORIKO AND SHUYA ALIVE AND WAS A MASTER MIND DIED WHEN NORIKO WHO DID ABSOLUTELY NOTHING SURVIVED MAKES ME FREAKING ANGRY
it is not fair
And I’m not even counting Hiroki Sugimura who fight Kiriyama WITH A FREAKING STICK WHEN HE HAD A COLLECTION OF GUNS AND EVEN GRANADES
In recent decades one country’s horror cinema has become synonymous with utter terror and downright creepiness. I’m talking of course about Japan. But what is it that’s made this country’s films so damn scary.
We will be taking a journey though the history of Japanese horror, from its origins the Kaidan and Kabuki in the Edo period, though the Gothic horror of the Tale of Ugetsu and tokido yotsuya Kaidan, the nuclear horrors of Godzilla and Matango, the Pinku Eiga of the 70s, the golden age of Ringu and Dark Water in the late 90’s and the social horror of Battle Royal.
Kill Bill Vol. 1 director Quentin Tarantino was a big fan of the 2000 Japanese movie Battle Royale, so he cast Chiaki Kuriyama (who played Takako Chigusa in Battle Royale) as Gogo Yubari. Gogo Yubari is not a real Japanese name. “Gogo” derives from Mach GoGoGo (aka Speed Racer), a Japanese anime that Tarantino liked when he was young. Yubari is the name of a small town in Hokkaido, northern Japan, that is famous for melons and film. Tarantino’s first visit to Japan was to showcase Reservoir Dogs at the Yubari International Fantastic Film Festival (x).
