Yakuza Apocalypse: The Great War of the Underworld

de Takashi Miike

Synopsis

 Kamiura is a legendary Yakuza boss. And it’s little wonder that he’s so old, because he’s a vampire. Threatened by his enemies, Kamiura bites his assistant Kageyama and passes his powers on to him before dying in a violent fight. Miike’s prolific mind brings us this twist on the Japanese mafia story.
