From Takashi Miike, the prolific director of such shocking hits including Audition and Ichi the Killer comes "The Sound of Music meets Dawn of the Dead"!
The Katakuris are a family trying to run a peaceful country inn but with a lack of guests there is much excitement for their first visitor, until they wind up dead! As each guest in turn dies in strange circumstances the family agree to hide the bodies but will the coverups come back to haunt them...
In The Happiness of the Katakuris scenes of grotesque stop motion animation, surreal musical numbers and zombies combine to make one of the finest horror-comedies ever made.
weirdly - and often wonderfully - entertaining --Seattle Times
Anyone with a weakness for song-and-dance dementia on the level of Forbidden Zone and Cannibal! The Musical will find all this irresistible --Eye Weekly
a supremely fun watch --The Film Connoisseur Magazine

As I left the theater I looked around at my fellow theater goers and saw sly grins, chuckles, bemusement and head shaking. We had really been thru something,let me tell you! Strangers exchanged smiles and comments. the bizarre experience had forged a common bond. We had seen the Katakuris!.
I could describe the story, but why bother...see it, it is bold, original, masterly, flawed and wonderful. I can guarantee you one thing, it's fresh and you won't be bored.
