What Once Was Funky Is Now Warped: THE WARPED FOREST Trailer!
Rejoice my brothers and sisters of the cult of Funky Forest, a second contact has been made! While Katsuhito Ishii and Aniki are not in participating in this excursion into the wild blue yonder, we have the third member of the Funky Forest directorial triumvirate, Shunichiro Miki, to guide us through the dense foliage of surreal, fleshy and hilarious delights.
Those concerned about this installment being a solo effort, should bear in mind that it was Miki who gave us this timeless image:
So rest assured, while Ishii and Aniki's involvement will most certainly be missed, The Warped Forest will no doubt conjure up even more memorable sexual surrealism then you can shake a Cronenbergian fetus puppet at.
Don't believe me? Check out the trailer embedded below!
And here's the Hawaii International Film Festival's write-up on the film:
shopgirl can barely fit in her store, there's a weird green pod in every bedroom, and terrifying wood nymphs provide a heartbroken woman with the anatomically correct fruit everyone seems to covet. In the end we are left, like Alice, with the Red King's conundrum: are we dreaming them or are they dreaming us?
That's right, The Warped Forest will be making its world premiere at the 31st Annual Hawaii International Film Festival next week. Check out the info page here, which includes a gallery of images from the film. How I wish Alien Pico-Rico would abduct me and take me to Honolulu this second, I don't care if it gives me a second uvula, I need to breathe this film now!
