Hiruko the Goblin

Japan199090mincolorFiction

is a 1990 film by one of the most prominent directors of Japanese films in the 20th century and the master of Japanese cyberpunk films, Tsukamoto Shinya. This Tsukamoto Shinya's second feature film was restored to 2K to commemorate the 30th anniversary of its release. Director's bizarre imagination bursts in this horror mystery genre-like film. At the high school built on the gates of hell, the archaeology teacher Hidea and haunted high school student Masao’s life-threatening fight against Hiruko, a goblin trying to invade the Earth, begins. Shocking visuals and spooky vibes such as Hiruko’s deathly pale face, spider-like legs popped up countlessly on his head, tentacle-like long tongues dramatically maximize the imagination of the film's original work, Morohoshi Taijiro’s comic book with the same title.
