Welcome to a world where violence is a virtue and depravity is a way of life. This is the underside of Shinjuku, and the Home of Kakihara, a sadistic Yakuza killer. He relentlessly tears apart the underworld searching for the man who killed his boss. The mastermind behind the plot is Jijii, an ex-cop bent on turning the gangsters of Japan against one another. His trump card is a physically powerful lunatic who is constantly on the verge of snapping. This madman is Ichi, the killer, and between him and Kakihara, the streets will run red with blood. Brought to you by Takashi Miike, the director of Audition and Visitor Q.

I would presume the main crowd who will be swiping this up are those who are fans of Miike's work and are purists of the original audo track. Here's to hoping... Read More
