“If he’s trying to murder me, I’ll kill him first.” Another official trailer is available to watch for this kooky and crazy Japanese horror film called Lumberjack the Monster, based on the novel of the same name. A suspenseful thriller directed by Takashi Miike and starring Kazuya Kamenashi. The brutal film is about a series of bizarre murders by someone wearing a strange monster mask found in the picture book ‘Monster Woodcutter’ who then steals their brains. Akira heads out to get revenge on this Lumberjack killer. The plot follows this Patrick Bateman-like psychopath lawyer (who also kills) going up against this vicious masked murderer – pitting a psychopath against a serial killer in a totally bonkers new Takashi Miike creation. Only someone like Miike could make something so absurd! Lumberjack the Monster stars Kazuya Kamenashi as Akira Ninomiya, Nanao, Riho Yoshioka, Shota Sometani, and Shido Nakamura. The film already opened in Japan last December, and it will premiere at a Japan Society event in NYC this May – but is still waiting for a US release eventually. Hopefully sooner than later.

Akira Ninomiya (Kamenashi) is a remorseless lawyer who doesn’t hesitate to eliminate anyone standing in his way. One night he is brutally attacked by an assailant wearing a “monster mask.” Although he miraculously survives the assault, Ninomiya becomes fixated on finding the attacker and getting revenge. Meanwhile, a series of gruesome murder occur where the victims are found with their brains removed from their bodies. While police conduct an intensive investigation, Ninomiya seeks revenge against the assaulter. Who will uncover the truth first?! Lumberjack the Monster, originally Kaibutsu no Kikori or 怪物の木こり in Japanese, is directed by prolific Japanese filmmaker Takashi Miike, of many films previously including Yakuza Apocalypse, Shield of Straw, Ace Attorney, Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai, 13 Assassins, Terra Formars, Blade of the Immortal, Laplace’s Witch, First Love, and the Connect series most recently. The screenplay is written by Hiroyoshi Koiwai, based on the novel “Kaibutsu no Kikori” by Mayusuke Kurai (Takarajima). Warner Bros released Miike’s Lumberjack the Monster in Japanese cinemas last December – still no US release date confirmed yet. It will also premiere at NYC’s Japan Society in early May – info here.
