Cult Focus - The Miike Collection

Cult Focus - The Miike Collection

Takashi Miike is counted as a rarity in the crazy world of movies. With a broad range of genres and an extensive list of titles that make most director's body of work seem small, Miike has created some of the most iconic Cult Movies of the last 30 years.

In this collection we at ARROW wanted to highlight a delightful menagerie of his works from the terrifying delights of AUDITION to the visual insanity of THE HAPPINESS OF THE KATAKURIS all in one place. Here you will find mind-blowing ACTION from the DEAD OR ALIVE trilogy, the Yakuza crime stylings of the BLACK SOCIETY TRILOGY and GRAVEYARD OF HONOR and the batshit insane sci-fi action romp of Manga adaption TERRAFORMARS. We have also included a few key extras all about Miike that give a little bit of an insight in to one of the greatest of all time - all here on ARROW

    Tapping into the same brand of terror as the Ring and Grudge movies, visionary director Takashi Miike ('Audition', 'Blade of the Immortal') presents a modern, high-tech twist on that mainstay of Japanese folklore, the yurei or vengeful spirit, in the form of its own iconic antihero - the terrifyi...
