Kurando Mitsutake is back on set with his latest film, Maniac Driver. After exciting fans with rousing feats like Gun Woman and the blistering revenge thrills of Karate Kill, folks following Mitsutake’s work can now add his latest effort to a list of things to keep an eye on in 2020.
Pre-production began ten days ago marking his fifth project in Tokyo, with a shot of his new script. Mitsutake has since dropped a new look (via Facebook) at what’s in store for what he describes as a Japanese Giallo-style horror.
The term is derived from the applied genre in Italy, hailed by notable directors like Mario Bava, Antonio Margheriti and Sergio Martino. The genre waned over the last thirty years long since it’s heyday popularity in the sixties and seventies though its influence and cult affinity still remains to this day.
Clearly it’s a part of Mitsutake’s own tastes in film given he already has a dexterous handle on delivering rousing gore and violence to delight horror fans.
Keep a look out.
