Third Window Films are pleased to announce the acquisition of 2 cult, but very different types of films from Japan.
First off is the very well-known and big budget LESSON OF EVIL from Takashi Miike (from Ichi The Killer-fame!), which has been a big hit at all genre film festivals and frequently requested by our audience, so we are happy to be able to add it to our 2014 lineup. Third Window will aim for a small theatrical and then will bring it out on Blu-ray, DVD and VOD, with the video releases to contain a 2 hour long making of!
On the other side of the spectrum from the big name and big studio we have Eiji Uchida’s GREATFUL DEAD which is a totally off-the-wall mix of black comedy and strangeness which has drawn many comparisons to Sion Sono and especially LOVE EXPOSURE, but goes even further with its level of dark humour and violence.
Surprisingly it’s still pretty unknown, with it so far only having played at 2 festivals with both Raindance in the UK and Fantastic Festival in the States giving it good showings
