It must be very, very strange to be Junji Ito. Given what comes out of the celebrated manga artist's head, I can only imagine what all happens in it. Best known as the writer of Tomie and Uzumaki, Ito has a loyal worldwide cult for his off-kilter horror works and that cult has embraced the recent animated adaptation of his Gyo with open arms.
A story that imagines what would happen if all the fish in the world suddenly sprouted legs and moved to dry land - imagine a great white shark ambling down your street - Gyo has been a hit on the festival circuit and is about to be released on DVD in the UK on the Terrorcotta imprint. Which means, yes, new trailer.
It's a short one but it's got plenty of weird packed into its slender run time. Check the trailer below.
