THE HAPPINESS OF THE KATAKURIS
KATAKURI-KE NO KÔFUKU
2001, 113 min, Japan, Dir: Takashi Miike

Whimsical musical numbers, grotesque horror and Claymation all come together in this wildly surreal film by one of the world’s greatest masters of blending genre. The Katakuri family open a bed-and-breakfast in the remote countryside but are met with misfortune when their guests start dying in spectacular fashion. Determined to prevent negative publicity from spoiling their new business, the Katakuris pile corpse after corpse in the backyard to keep up appearances.
