A horror thriller from the director of ICHI THE KILLER and AUDITION. Prepare for a delirious descent into a nightmare world, courtesy of Japan's most untamed filmmaker, Takashi Miike. What starts out as a gangster film spirals rapidly out of control when a young yakuza is ordered to assassinate his own superior, who also happens to be his closest friend. When his target disappears before he can do the job, he sets out for a search that leads him into a mysterious town filled with lowlifes, oddballs and a cow-headed demon! Bizarre, nightmarish and hilarious all at the same time, GOZU is unlike anything you have ever seen before, even from Takashi Miike.

SPOILER ALERT This was straight-up weird, but in a good way. Some gangsters run around and do stuff and then one turns into a woman who gives birth to...himself? Yeah, like I said, it's pretty weird. I'd watch it again. in fact, I have to because I missed the part where he turns into a woman. I just looked up and he was a woman.

Bae and I must have talked/argued for HOURS after the credits rolled about what in the actual hell is going on here. If you like your horror more Lynch-y than splatter-y, like me, then this Miike masterpiece will definitely cure your hankering for the heebie-jeebies. Simply unforgettable.

One of Miike's most underrated films. Possibly tied for my favorite along with Audition. It's bizarre and hilarious, with shades of Twin Peaks.
