Product Overview

Loaded with blood and mayhem, the first collection from Danger After Dark is a trio of action-packed cult-favorites from Japan. In Suicide Club, a wave of unexplained suicides sweeps across Tokyo after 54 smiling girls join hands and throw themselves in front of an oncoming train. Meanwhile, Japanese pop sensations Gackt and HYDE star in Moon Child, a wildly entertaining hybrid of futuristic sci-fi, John Woo-style gunplay and gothic vampire horror. The triumvirate is completed with 2LDK, a vicious comedy about two roommates whose petty catfight turns into a duel to the death. System Requirements:Running Time 288 Mins.Format: DVD MOVIE

ReviewSource DVD Verdict
Review [Moon] Essentially, Moon Child is two films in one. The main film is a very typical John Woo inspired gangster action flick that has been tossed in a blender with the Interview with a Vampire inspired story of a creature of the night struggling to maintain good relationships with his potential food. In order to make the film extra cool, Director Takahisa Zeze (best known for making adult films) has tossed some dystopian sci-fi into the mixture as well...Unfortunately, none of these aspects of the film work as well as they should.

Review [Suicide] Writer/director Shion Sono presents an impressive satire on the power of popular culture and its control over the mindset of a country. With the media telling us how to dress, what to watch, and what to think, why not have the media tell us to kill ourselves? Granted, it's an unlikely scenario, but for the purpose of "Suicide Club" it drives the point home. Think for yourself and be yourself, Sono seems to be saying, and not what television and magazines say. Truly a laudable message and certainly advice worth taking.

Review [2LDK] Despite being a black comedy, the film is unrepentantly violent. When Lana and Nozomi finally get down to business it demonstrates that men may be violent creatures, but we don't have a thing on the women. The violence starts out physical and soon escalates to involving knives, intentional electrocution, a chainsaw, and more. These two women beat the hell out of each other in some of the most brutal ways imaginable, yet the whole thing never loses its dark comedy tone. It's an impressive balancing act pulled off by both director Tsutsumi and actresses Eiko Koike and Naho Nonami.

BeyondHollywood.com [Moon] ...artistically very satisfying...impressive visual style
Christopher Null, FilmCritic.com [Suicide] The film is at once utterly grotesque and uncommonly compelling.
Vince Leo, Qwipster's Movie Reviews [2LDK] ...a successful experimental flick, with two good performances by the stars...
