Eureka News Release
Sion Sono’s gory, pro-feminist mashup of grindhouse and arthouse
[For immediate release] Eureka Entertainment to release TAG, a dreamlike, mind-melting blend of action and fantasy from Japanese cult director Sion Sono, for the first time in the UK in a Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) edition on 20 November 2017, following screenings at some of the UK’s leading film festivals over the coming months.
Japanese auteur Sion Sono follows up the deliriously entertaining Tokyo Tribe, with Tag, a surreal horror that combines his arthouse aesthetics with equal doses of pro-feminist action fantasy, and the kind of ultra-gory exploitation filmmaking that would make Takashi Miike and Yoshihiro Nishimura proud.
Mitsuko (Reina Triendl) is the sole survivor of a bizarre paranormal incident that kills all of her classmates. Running for her life, Mitsuko seemingly slips into an alternate reality, but death and chaos seems to follow her everywhere. As Mitsuko finds herself in increasingly surreal and violent situations, the true horror behind her nightmare is revealed.
With a jaw-dropping opening sequence reminiscent of Sono’s earlier cult masterpiece, Suicide Club,Tag is a mind-bending slice of action-horror, Alice in Wonderland meets Tokyo Gore Police, and Eureka Entertainment is proud to present the film on Blu-ray and DVD.
