Full Trailer for Miike Takashi's Killer Teacher Flick LESSON OF THE EVIL
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.
Take a look and let us know what you think.
