I am ashamed to say that I’ve only recently heard of the Mo Brothers. Macabre was just as outstanding and terrifying in every gory aspect and I can’t help but feel the crave and thrill for what is to come in their new film, Killers.
Based on the original story of Nightmare Detective producer Ushiyama Takuji, Killers is of a gruesome tale of two men, Nomura and Bayu, a pair of serial killers who discover each other on the Internet.
Off to a nifty start, eh? It gets better…
Chaos rises as Bayu finds himself drawn into Nomura’s murderous acts, eventually going so far as to copycatting the murders committed by Nomura. The man who struggles to preserve his humanity inadvertently becomes a protege to another man whose legacy made him nothing short of a monster.
The film is described as an international horror-thriller due to the split production between Japan and Indonesia. Japanese production house Nikkatsu and producer Yoshinori Chiba will be backing the project while the Mo Brothers’ own Guerilla Merah Productions and Gareth Huw Evans’ P.T. Merantau Pictures will support the Indonesia side of the film.
The cast announced are Rin Takanashi, Oka Antara, Luna Maya, Tara Basro and veteran Indonesian actor Ray Sahetapy (The Raid).
