Miike Takashi is proving as prolific and controversial as ever, with his latest effort, Lesson Of The Evil
, already cued up for a November release in his native Japan. Continuing the high school setting of his last film, the fabulous gang war musical, For Love's Sake
, Miike's latest is aiming for a very different tone. Judging from the new trailer that has just landed, Lesson Of The Evil
is a pitch black comedy that owes a serious debt to both Fukasaku Kinji's Battle Royale
and Nakashima Testsuya's Confessions
. When students start digging around in the past of their most popular teacher (Ito Hideaki), they soon discover that behind his cheery exterior, he is in fact a psychopath. After that, well, let's just say there will be blood.
