Given that it is Japanese, I cannot help but feel I am supposed to be masturbating to this...

They also made a remake that was aimed at Western audiences, which wasn't ever released here and therefore died. The Japanese found it to be a Bowdlerization and the Americans it was meant for never saw it.

Wasn't that Takashi Miike's "The Great Yokai War"? Because that made it to my video store and I live in Assfuck, Mississippi.

Is it good? Sounds like it could be a fun night.

It's fun, but it's basically Miike doing a film for kids. If you know that going in, it's a good time.

I'm not certain how I know this, but the monster in this clip is a Kasa-obake, a type of possessed umbrella spirit from Japanese folklore. It was believed that any object kept in family for over a century would become possessed by an impish demon and bring mischief to the household.

They should make more of these.

The monster's little interpretive dance speaks to me. It says "My existence is a miserable abomination. Please kill me."

Neat clip tho.
