Visions of murderous drag queens dance in my head

I have had inspiration for my annual movie festival. This year I think it's going to be the films of Kinji Fukasuku. We've seen and loved his Battle Royale and Black Lizard, and I think it's time for us to get down and dirty with four of his finest. We'll start with Legend of the Eight Samurai. Check out this review: "As far as I can tell, there’s a mean princess who worships an evil spirit whose statue looks like the killer cucumber from It Conquered the World ... The best part is when this old crazy witch rips off her face, turns into a giant fake-looking centipede and tries to kill everyone before stabbed into a pile of green goo."

We'll preview the festival in person tonight at the 11 PM showing of Message from Space at the Grand Illusion, then pick it up for real some time after Thanksgiving. Let me know if you want to come!
