The Happiness Of The Katakuris
Directed by Takashi Miike
In Takashi Miike’s musical J-horror comedy, a family’s hotel guests keep mysteriously dying. But when they try to cover their dilemma up by burying bodies in the backyard, they dig themselves deeper and deeper into a web of weirdness. What else can the Katakuris do but burst into song-and-dance numbers complete with claymation and other oddities? Miike pulled off a hat trick in 2001, following up barf-inducing horror hits VISITOR Q and ICHI THE KILLER, with this shockingly sweet film, which instantly gained a reputation as one of the craziest cult films of all time. (In Japanese with English subtitles.) Guest Curator, Elijah Wood: "Takashi Miike’s family horror musical comedy. Enough said." Contains sexual scenes, violence and gore.

My favorite Takashi Miike Movie.
I am now re inventing my life!
Really fun movie
A mediocre film. With okay everything (visuals, acting, effects). The musical elements are pretty weak, mainly due to there length, lyrics, and the quality of singing. Also the fact that there are so many songs in such a short time span makes the songs less memorable. This is a personal nitpick I have but movies that are just weird for the sake of weird really annoy me. 5/10
