Nickson Fong (Dir), 124 minutes, USA/Japan, Buffalo Premiere
Opening Night Gala
Director Nickson Fong, and Stars Liam Aiken, Mitzi Akaha, Kiki Sukezane, Emma Caymares, Brandon Gill in attendance.
An electronic musician (Liam Aiken) and a troubled fan with a haunting voice (Mitzi Akaha) are plunged into a hallucinogenic nightmare when they must confront an ancient entity capable of bending space and time, and wreaking havoc and death; in order to save their own souls and the lives of those they love.
Based on a Japanese legend and shot on location throughout Buffalo and surrounding lands (including The Statler, Rock City State Forest, and more!), this musical-horror-fantasy film is one wild ride!
