Yusuke Yamada's 2001 novel Riaru Onigokko (or Real Life Game of Tag) has inspired this latest gore-fest from cult director Sion Sono (Tokyo Tribe, Why Don’t You Play In Hell?). There is no shortage of blood and violence as the movie receives the full “Sono treatment”.

Mitsuko is thrown into a bloody, surreal adventure she didn't ask for. Transported from one parallel existence to another, she struggles to hold on to her slipping identity as she tries to fight her attackers - sometimes in school uniform, sometimes in full bridal wear.
