Have you ever heard of a vampire yakuza film? Neither have we, but Takashi Miike has made it a reality in his upcoming film Yakuza Apolcalypse: The Great War of the Underworld.
The new full-length trailer for Yakuza Apocalypse marks Miike’s return to genre film making as we watch bloodthirsty gangs battle in the underworld with added creepy frog costumes.
Hayato Ichihara stars as protagonist vampire and yakuza Akira, alongside Indonesian star of The Raid films, Yayan Ruhian in this bizarre tale of blood lust and violence.
Akira admires his boss Genyo Kamiura, who happens to be not only the most powerful yakuza but also a vampire. As Akira grows disappointed with the yakuza world, he is bitten and has to battle a gang of deadly assassins who know about Genyo’s bloodsucking secret.
