EXCLUSIVE: The Bloody UK Trailer For Miike's LESSON OF EVIL

James Marsh, Asian Editor
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 Twitch 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!

    Gives the story away? What story? It's about a teacher who everyone thinks is the duck's nuts that kills all of his students.

    Best film of 2013 for me.

    This new trailer gives too much away... still, maybe people need that. Who knows?!

    Kudos to Third Window for their faith in this and other Japanese genre efforts.

    I don't think a sequel will be made. It could be just a twisted joke from Miike that provides false hope. Either way, as a joke or a pathway to a sequel, it's both equally effective.

    they did make a prequel though!

    Thank fuck for the IFFR and their love for Mr. Miike.
    This flick is (literally) a double-barrelled blast. Loved the twist at the end, quite clever and original. And I just hope the promised sequel will get made some day soon.

    *whistles Mack the Knife and blows a laconic raspberry.
