Suicide Club

Suicide Club

A FILM BY: Sion Sono
WRITTEN BY: Sion Sono
STARRING: Ryo Ishibashi, Masatoshi Nagase, Mai Hosho

More bizarre than Battle Royale and far bloodier than The Ring, 20 years later Sion Sono’s Suicide Club (2001) hasn't lost any of its power to shock and intrigue. Themes of techno-paranoia and disillusioned youth common in Japanese horror around the turn of the millennium are still present, but Sono uses them as a jumping-off point for an inspired blend of chilling horror atmosphere, macabre glam-rock sadism, and the creepiest children this side of Village Of The Damned. Opening with an unforgettable scene of schoolgirls bathing commuters in carnage and building to a haunting existential finale, you’ll never look at perky teen pop groups the same way again. {Katie Rife]
