Yamamoto's Bloodthirsty Trilogy

October 12 to October 24

Drawing inspiration both from motifs of traditional Japanese folklore and the modern horror movies coming from Hammer Studios in the UK, Michio Yamamoto created a kind of vampire movie quite unlike anything seen at home or abroad with his influential, cult-cherished “Bloodthirsty Trilogy”—films long revered by fans of Asian genre cinema, though only just beginning to be known by a wider audience in the US. These are strange and stylish movies, vibrating with unsettling atmosphere—and if you let just one put the first bite on you, you’ll undoubtedly be addicted.
