Sion Sono on Bringing His Hip-Hop Musical ‘Tokyo Tribe’ to Life

29 October 2015 8:16 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Sion Sono’s Tokyo Tribe is, to put it mildly, 2015’s most deliriously over-the-top creation. A violent, messy, occasionally uproarious (and frequently off-putting) hip-hop musical, this latest genre stew from the director of Why Don’t You Play in Hell? is set in a futuristic Japan of rival street gangs. Based on a popular Manga series, Tokyo Tribe is, well, unlike anything else to grace screens in recent memory. It is, then, vintage Sion Sono.

The film has finally been released in U.S.  theaters and on VOD, and interestingly, the prolific director’s latest film, The Whispering Star, made its world premiere at September’s Toronto International Film Festival. The Film Stage was able to line him up for a brief email interview to promote Tokyo’s long-awaited American release.

What appealed to you about the manga series you adapted for Tokyo Tribe? And what made the musical the right genre for your adaptation? »

Bluray review: The Human Centipede: The Complete Sequence

29 October 2015 4:20 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

When the gang at Scream Factory partnered up with IFC Midnight to co-release some of the latter’s roster on Bluray, horror fans were given great releases of films like Wyrmwood: Road Of The Dead, Dark Summer and Ejecta, among other standout genre films. While those titles were all three films that offered genre fans something new or at least something fun, it was only a matter of time before things went sour at least a little bit, and with the newly released three-film set of The Human Centipede: The Complete Sequence, we’ve hit that point.


The Films:

Combining all three films in Tom Six’s trilogy of bad taste, The Human Centipede: The Complete Sequence is easily a Bluray set that will please fans of the series, but if you’re either a casual horror fan looking for something entertaining on a Friday night or even »

‘The Human Centipede 3: Final Sequence’ Review

28 May 2015 7:44 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Dieter Laser, Laurence R. Harvey, Bree Olsen, Eric Roberts, Robert Lasardo, Tommy ‘Tiny’ Lister, Clayton Rohner, Jay Tavare, Michael Flores, Carlos Ramirez, James Darnell, Akihiro Kitamura, Chris Clanton | Written and Directed by Tom Six

The wait is finally over ladies and gentlemen! One of this years most anticipated horror films is finally here! Yep, Tom Six (I Love Dries) has finally unleashed The Human Centipede 3: Final Sequence upon the world. When I watched parts 1 & 2 upon initial release, I was rather underwhelmed, but upon revisiting the films prior to the third and final chapter in the trilogy, I found myself enjoying the films for what they are. I won’t go in to detail because if you’re reading this review, you have already seen them. Needless to say, the films were brutal with an original concept that made Dieter Laser (John Gleuckstadt) amd Laurence R. Harvey (The Editor) household names and horror icons. »
