Insane Trailer for Sion Sono’s ‘Why Don’t You Play in Hell?’
Legendary Japanese filmmaker Sion Sono blew audiences away last year at TIFF (where we first saw it) with his insanely wild film Why Don’t You Play in Hell?, which he describes as “an action film about the love of 35mm.” This self-aware genre exploitation movie is based on a screenplay he wrote nearly fifteen years ago about an amateur film crew who earn an opportunity to film a live yakuza battle to the death. Filled with laughs, action, extreme violence, and general outrageousness, Why Don’t You Play in Hell? is often compared to the work of Quentin Tarantino. Watch the trailer below to see for yourself just how ridiculous (in the best way possible) the film looks.
Why Don’t You Play in Hell? will hit theaters and VOD on November 7th.
