The Happiness Of The Katakuris

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.

It has a humorous horror feeling to it, the claymation scenes were bizarre and kind of funny. The claymation dog part cracked me up, and when they held hands with the dog that was just as funny

Couldn’t take my eyes off it, so bizarre, funny and nonsensical yet sometimes wise. Great little film.
