Mind Game

Mind Game

Directed by Masaaki Yuasa

Nishi, too wimpy to try to save his childhood sweetheart from gangsters, is shot in the butt by a soccer-playing psychopath, projecting Nishi into the afterlife. In this limbo, God – shown as a series of rapidly changing characters – tells him to walk toward the light. But Nishi runs like hell in the other direction and returns to Earth a changed man, driven to live each moment to the fullest.

Determined to live life to the fullest after literally cheating death, loser Nishi drags his childhood sweetheart and her sister into a surreally dire situation that leads to a spiritual journey for the three of them.

Cast: Koji Imada, Sayaka Maeda, Takashi Fujii, Seiko Takuma

5 skulls or stars for anything Masaaki Yuasa, I would think Cat Soup would fit better on Shudder if you can get it!

There is a difficult amount of rape in this movie, followed by a lot of incel-energy character development, but holy shit the animation is cool, and the pacing is buck wild. Worth a watch if you can handle.

Not horror to me at all... but definitely a weirder movie with an interesting message. I'm a sucker for some Kansai-ben, but the animation was so unique and delightful. If you want horror, don't bother - but if you're down with anything else and like animated things, give it a go.
