Newly Restored  Two by Teruo Ishii

There are no current or future screenings planned for this film.

In adapting several stories by Japan’s master of weird fiction Edogawa Rampo (a pseudonym: say the name aloud and you’ll get the reference to a certain American writer of terror tales), Teruo Ishii produces a masterpiece of the “ero-guro-nansensu” (erotic-grotesque-nonsense) thread of Japanese pulp art. Starting in an insane asylum and ending on a psychedelically rendered island of miscreants, it is truly a fascinating artifact of its times.
