Full Trailer For Kurosawa's CREEPY

Kurosawa Kiyoshi does the marketers a favor with the title of his upcoming Creepy, a film that is, indeed, exactly what it promises on the tin.

Nishijima Hidetoshi stars as criminal psychologist Takakura who is investigating a family's disappearance from six years earlier. At the same time Takakura and his wife Yasuko (Takeuchi Yuko) have moved into a new house next door to friendly neighbor Nishino (Teruyuki Kagawa), his sick wife (Misaki Saisho) and teenage daughter (Ryoko Fujino). Things take a turn for the strange when the daughter, Mio, one day jumps into Takaura's house and states that the man she is living with is not her father but a complete stranger.

Following a previous teaser the full trailer has now arrived and while it's been a while since Kurosawa last delivered something truly at the top of his game this one does look quite promising. Take a look below.

What? Todd reviewing a japanese film without critizicing the director?

"it's been a while since Kurosawa last delivered something truly at the top of his game"

Phew! ε-(´・`) フ

Shall I be more specific in my criticism? Yes, lets!

Following Kurosawa's run from Cure in 1997 to Doppelganger in 2003 - a pretty damn fantastic run of 11 titles in just six years in which pretty much everything he touched was amazing - he has released ten projects of which only two (Tokyo Sonata and Penance) are unreservedly great and on par with that peak period of production. Of the other post-Doppelganger projects, I personally have a weak spot for Retribution which I think works really well for long periods of its run time, but the rest are all varying degrees of awful with Loft and Real being - in my opinion - the worst things in his entire filmography.

And two good projects out of ten in a span of thirteen years, with his last truly great piece of work being four years old now (with a bunch of not great stuff coming since), is not at all a good hit rate and more than merits the note of caution.

But, you know, feel free to continue your blind devotion in service of his nationality. Because apparently everything the Japanese shit out is gold.

Serious question: What do you think the fascination with picking fights with you is all about?

Todd BrownMarch 24, 2016 4:58 PM

It all stems back to - gasp! - me suggesting that some of Sono's films are misogynist. Which they demonstrably are. He's never been able to let that go.

You saw Tag as "misogynist", when I saw it as "femenist".
But that is no the problem. The problem is that you doesn't said the same thing about, for example, Ghostbusters... ;-)
I think you're biased.

I haven't seen Ghostbusters yet and will reserve judgement until I do. Given that Feig's work has been overwhelmingly pro-woman and much, much smarter than that trailer my guess is that it's a piece of poorly executed marketing but we'll see when we see and it'll be judged accordingly.

Sono, though? I've seen pretty much his entire body of work and it's littered with pointless, leering up skirt shots, rape-em-till-they-like-it male fantasy, and generally treats women as props. I've spent time with him in person and watched how he interacts with women. I've looked at the sorts of things he says and does in the Japanese media and talked directly with people who have worked with him across multiple projects who just laugh and say, 'Of course he's a misogynist, how is that even a question?' My opinion on Tag is very well grounded.

But none of that really matters because at the end of the day you're just an obsessive troll and now I'll just go back to giving you the attention you deserve, which is none.

Your opinion.... is just your opinion. Not the truth.

I'll wait to see you talk about a japanese film... without criticize its maker or the industry or whatever.

Insulting me doesn't change the fact that your last 4 or 5 posts about japanese products were like that.
