This may actually be the most accurate trailer ever.
The entire movie is like this. If the trailer makes you cackle with glee, by all means get your hands on it. Even the set up, before they get to the house, is from another planet, with shit like a bus pulling up in front of a matte painting so they can get off it and stand in front of another, smaller painting clearly visible in the wide shot, or ADRed comments clearly taken from some sort of early DVD commentary that results in the girls effectively MSTing the movie themselves.
Then you have cats being tossed into frame, chandeliers attacking people who calmly unleash some bizarrely edited kung fu before going on with things as if nothing out of the ordinary has happened, and, in a precursor to moe traditions, all the one-note characters are named after their sole defining characteristic.
Apparently this director is also responsible for a live action -- and bizarrely international -- film of Drifting Classroom.


  1. I suppose this is where we throw out a link to its touring schedule. Oh man, they're selling merch, too.

  2. Actually, now that I think about it, Janus were the ones distributing this, too. Someone over there is beautifully insane.

  3. They were giving this on IFC one night. The few bits of it I saw were very very strange. I foolishly didn't watch the whole thing because I assumed they would repeat it :\

  4. You didn't mention the piano death scene!

    Criterion has done an HD master for it. Hopefully the blu-ray will be released in late 2010, as its going to be touring a while.

  5. The movie was completely great. I'm going to see if I can get permission to show it at Gen Con.

    More people must be exposed.

  6. Dammit, now I'm raging that I missed that IFC airing.
