He last entertained us with oddball action in “Yo-Yo Girl Cop" and the flawed but highly enjoyable fright fest ‘X-Cross,’ now Japanese director Kenta Fukasaku is back with another nut-job weird horror creation Black Rat, featuring high school students in a battle for survival against a Rat masked maniac killer.
Don’t let the saccharin sweet home page of the official site fool you, there’s a bloody trailer featuring teens being bumped off in all sorts of suitably gruesome ways, to be seen (centre button) within. Black Rat opens in Japan at the end on the month, and here’s hoping we get to see it English subbed very soon!
Synopsis: Six classmates received an e-mail from Asuka who should have committed suicide, when they were to get together in a classroom that night. At 1 a.m., a person wearing a bloody rat-mask appears, ferociously attacking them, saying "I'm going to avenge Aska!" Will this be the end of them all!? And who is the rat-masked person!?
