Lesson of Evil


aka: Lesson of the Evil
Japan 2012, 129 minutes
Dir. Takashi Miike
In Japanese with English subtitles
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Horror / Black Comedy


Aroview: Another manga adaption from director cult Takashi Miike based on the seinen manga on the same name.

A successful English teacher who is secretly a sociopath concocts an unhinged plan to deal with bullying in his school, which turns into a bloodbath. Recommended for fans of the director's brilliantly unpredictable style, since this one comes in at an indulgent 2+ hours and doesn't have too much new to offer - just a slick slasher with the same boundary pushing sense of humour and chaotic bloodshed.
