This Trailer for Yakuza Apocalypse is as Crazy as You'd Expect it to Be!
"In the ruthless underground world of the yakuza, no one is more legendary than boss Kamiura. Rumored to be invincible, the truth is he is a vampire-a bloodsucking yakuza vampire boss! Among Kamiura's gang is Kageyama, his most loyal underling. However, the others in the gang view Kageyama with disdain and ridicule him for his inability to get tattooed due to sensitive skin. One day, assassins aware of boss Kamiura's secret arrive from abroad and deliver him an ultimatum: Return to the international syndicate he left years ago, or die. Kamiura refuses and, during a fierce battle with anime-otaku martial-arts expert Kyoken, is torn limb from limb. With his dying breath, Kamiura bites Kageyama, passing on his vampire powers to the unsuspecting yakuza. As he begins to awaken to his newfound abilities, Kageyama's desire to avenge the murder of boss Kamiura sets him on a course for a violent confrontation with Kaeru-kun, the foreign syndicate's mysterious and seemingly unstoppable leader!"

Anytime the name Takashi Miike is mentioned, we take notice; the guy is a brilliant filmmaker who has given us some insane, surreal, disturbing, and fantastic movies over the years, and so we're always curious to see what he's doing next.

It turns out that what he's doing next is a Comedy/Action/Horror hybrid about Yakuza Vampires, so how can we not be intrigued? The fact that Yayan Ruhian, star of The Raid & The Raid 2, is headlining this one only makes us NEED to see it all the more.

It also has a guy kicking ass in a frog costume. Come on!

You can check out the bat-shit crazy trailer below, and check out the movie when it hits the U.S. on October 9th. *We're assuming that it will be available on VOD as well as in Limited Theatrical Release.


  1. Just saw it at a film festival, and had a total bastante! One of the most bizarre flicks I have ever seen

    1. We're jealous!

      Miike is always bizarre, but he's so damn good at it. Can't wait to see it.
