HALLOWEEN NIGHT, EARLY SHOW! ATA's OTHER CINEMA presents the national editor of J-Pop mag OTAKU USA, Patrick Macias. Flying in from Tokyo for this Halloween event, he will be terrorizing us with tales of the roots and branches of the now super-hot J-Horror phenomenon. Macias grounds his explication in the work of Nobuo Nakagawa, considered the grandfather of the genre. His Jigoku (Hell, 1960) is acknowledged as one of the first gore films that broke through to popular consciousness, and woke the world of cinema to this phantastic thematic and stylistic vocabulary. The surreal supernatural feature draws upon the Buddhist idea of retribution that all earthly sins must be atoned for after death. Patrick threads his appreciation of Nakagawa through excerpts from three of his other works, The Ceiling at Utsunomiya (1956), The Ghost of Yotsuya (1958), and The Mansion of the Ghost Cat (1959). Come early, in cosplay, for free hot sake, flying turtles, and the haunted sounds of DJ ONANIST. --->NOTE: 7:30 start time!
$6.66.
