Topic: Wicked City (1987)

Awesome, sexy, violent and sleek animated supernatural horror fantasy from Yoshiaka Kawajari of Ninja Scroll fame and one of my favorite animated movies since i rented it on video when i was 14 as it blew me away with it's storytelling, animation, imagination and unique creatures as it's a very Cronenberg/Lovecraft/Carpenter inspired movie.

Re: Wicked City (1987)

I've seen both this and the live-action Hong Kong adaptation from '92 or so.  Both are pretty trippy with some bizarre, hallucinatory imagery.  I suppose I'm overdue for a re-watch...

Re: Wicked City (1987)

Never heard of this movie, to think of it not seen many  Foreign movies this year

Re: Wicked City (1987)

Sounds interesting. It's hard to find good horror anime. One I liked was called Pet Shop of Horrors.

Re: Wicked City (1987)

Anyone thinks some of this was inspired by The Thing and Cronenberg's films?

Re: Wicked City (1987)

Doubt it , it's like saying hentai is inspired by the thing and cronenberg's films. A lot of Japanese movies has always tends to be on the weird side.

Wicked City has a lot of perverse stuffs and hentai anime with all that weird tentacle sex and bloody violence. The live action is equally weird just without the hardcore sex scenes and nudity.

Hope this gif isn't too offensive. lol
