Teaser Trailer for Takashi Miike’s Lesson of the Evil Kicks Like a Shotgun

No Comments

Holy shit. The teaser trailer for Japanese director Takashi Miike’s upcoming high school massacre flick “Lesson of the Evil” is pretty effective. Granted, it doesn’t show you much — this is a teaser, after all — but what it offers is definitely memorable. Hideaki Ito stars as a mentally unstable teacher who gives his students an impromptu education in fear. I can’t wait to see how this one goes over in the States.

Specifically, here’s what the flick is about:

High school teacher Seiji Hasumi (Hideaki Ito) is the most popular teacher at his school with an attractive smile. Yet, Seiji Hasumi is a psychopath. To solve some of his school’s problems, like bullying, and to protect himself, Seiji begins to kill his students one by one.

“Lesson of Evil” also stars Fumi Nikaido, Shota Sometani, Kento Hayashi, and Takayuki Yamada, opens in Japanese theaters later this year. When you’re ready to see what the cinematic adaptation of Yusuke Kishi’s novel is going to look like, take a peek at the video below. If you despise seeing violence against children, then don’t even bother.
