Introduction and Q&A with the director (both screenings)! Party with Director Sono at the 7/6 JAPAN CUTS Launch Party.

U.S. Premiere. Co-presented with New York Asian Film Festival. 2007, 35mm, color. Directed by Sion Sono. With Chiaki Kuriyama (Kill Bill), Ren Osugi and Megumi Sato.

A beautiful young girl is found brutally murdered within a container full of hair. A man with an insatiable hair fetish steals the corpse, which grows hair endlessly, and fashions hair extensions to sell to salons. Little does he realize that the extensions carry the fury of the girl’s vengeance, killing anyone who wears them. Director Shion Sono (who also directed Into a Dream) ingeniously mixes comedy with fright in this hilarious and hair raising J-horror.
