Trailer: Feel The Wrath Of Nakata Hideo's MONSTERZ
Remarkably intense and perfectly intriguing, this might be one of the best trailers I've seen in quite a while. Nakata Hideo's Monsterz looks like a bloody good time, and for all the right reasons. The indisputable Master of J-horror is definitely in his comfort zone with a dark and moody picture that somehow immediately brings to mind the usual Miike Takashi madness.

A remake of the highly successful but mildly entertaining 2010 South Korean thriller Haunters, Monsterz focuses on a mysterious man who has the power to control others just by looking at them with his piercing blue eyes (so vividly depicted in the video).

 A man (Fujiwara Tatsuya) possesses a special ability to manipulate others with just his eyes. Because of this special ability, he killed his abusive father and was abandoned by his mother. He now lives a lonely life in the dark side of a city. 

Meanwhile, Tanaka Shuichi (Yamada Takayuki) doesn't have a family and lives with his friends. Even though he is poor, he has a bright outlook on life. One day, these two men meet. The man becomes confused, because he can't manipulate Shuichi with his eyes.

Monsterz will have its Japanese premiere on May 10, 2014. Check out the impressive full-length trailer below!

Haunters was not bad. Seems the Japanese are back into filmmaking after the radiation disaster.
Please make GANTZ 3 as well, while you are at making good films!
