Movie propaganda

Asia’s most controversial and popular director, Takashi Miike, brings you his horror vision of a samurai tale. In the era of the Shogun, an evil young Lord terrorises and kills, assured of immunity by law. But he didn’t count on the 13 Assassins, a fearless group of elite samurai secretly commissioned to wipe him out. Led by esteemed samurai Shinzaemon Shimada, the Assassins track the sadistic Lord Naritsugu as he makes his annual journey home to ancient Tokyo, ambushing him in a mountain village they have transformed into a death trap. But when the Lord arrives, our Assassins discover they are outnumbered fifteen to one by his crack team of bodyguards. The streets will run red.
