This book cover became a minor meme, but I don’t think most people believed it was real–or that it was, in fact, a landmark work of queer sci-fi. And also eye-poppingly terrible.
This was one of the last films of the J-Horror remake boom of the early 00s. And despite being a bit of a mess, it has some genuinely ideas.
There’s trash and then there’s TRASH. Ah, I remember it well.
It has some spots that haven’t aged well (fantasy racism!), but this is definitely the best encapsulation of 90s anime trends and emotional beats with a minimal amount of bullshit, if you’ve ever wanted to watch something throwback. I still like it a lot.
The movie so nice it deserved visiting twice, with a guest who fully appreciates its charms.
This movie came right the fuck out of nowhere and it is the most bugfuck weirdo flick I’ve ever seen. It was fabulous.
This one’s a soul-crusher folks. And we’re experienced in reading this crap.
