Why is this pink bair chained up? That's just one the many questions that will cross your mind while watching this trailer for Noboru Igushi's 'Gothic Lolita Battle Bear'. Be warned, you do not watch this video within the first hour of waking up or it might break your brain:
Igushi's other directing credits include crazy movies like 'Robo Geisha' and 'The Machine Girl'. But this latest film just takes it to the next level of bizarre. Here's the movie's description from the Stockholm Film Festival:
"Gothic lolita fashion enthusiast Yumeko Ayukawa, nicknamed Dameko, possesses the ability to merge with her talking pink teddy bear Buusuke to form Nuigulumar, a sexy leather-clad superheroine. Using her furry nunchucks, she must battle evil villain Takeshi, his psychic subordinate Kill Billy and a horde of 109 zombies, the highest number of the undead ever seen in a Japanese film.
Based on the works (both a novel and a song) of Kenji Ohtsuki, a popular musician in the Japanese subculture known as 'otaku', 'Nuigulumar Z' revels in director Iguchi's brand of twisted B-movie hysteria. Although it may not include his usual penchant for toilet humor, homicidal sushi and robotic geishas, the film doesn't skimp on his trademark gore, this time incorporating copious special effects in a particular homage to Japanese 'tokusatsu' (special effect) films and TV series."
It’s hard to find a person who didn’t like 2012’s Dredd, a film that stands alongside RoboCop as the ultra-violent, dystopic film fans needed at the time, but a sequel to the movie hasn’t been forthcoming; in fact, over the past few years, the likelihood of a second outing for Olivia Thirlby and Karl Urban’s chin has hovered around zero.
