Nikkatsu Trailer Theatre #1:
IDLENESS INTENSIFIES AND
WILD EXCITEMENT ESCALATES!
One of the best things about the recent plethora of great Nikkatsu movies popping up as blu-ray releases from UK labels (primarily the ever more praise-worthy Arrow Video) is the opportunity it gives us to view the films’ original Japanese trailers with English sub-titles, thus attaining an insight into the company’s, shall we say, unique approach to promotion.
Above, you can observe their hard sell on one of my all-time favourites, Yasuharu Hasebe’s Stray Cat Rock: Sex Hunter, and as long as the discs keep coming, there’ll be more to come in this series of posts, I’m sure.
