After exploring more austere and epic projects, including 13 Assassins
and Harakiri: Death Of A Samurai
, Miike Takashi returned to his blood-soaked exploitation roots in fine style with Lesson Of Evil
, the darkly comic story of a deranged high school teacher who starts offing his irritating, self-obsessed students.
Our good friends over at Third Window Films have snapped up UK rights for the film, which will debut at Edinburgh's Dead By Dawn Film Festival, running from 24-27 April. Also debuting at the festival will be Third Window's other new acquisition, the equally wonderful Greatful Dead from Uchida Eiji. Both films will then appear at other festivals in the region ahead of a limited theatrical run before hitting Blu-ray and DVD later this summer 2014.
Here at ScreenAnarchy we are huge fans of both films, and we are thrilled to hear that British audiences will soon be able to experience both on their format of choice. We'll keep you updated with the specifics of those releases nearer the time, but just to whet your appetites we have the exclusive first look at the brand new UK trailer for Miike's Lesson Of Evil. Check it out below!
