Prisoners of the ghostland

Poster Prisoners of the ghostland

Samourai Town. In a post-apocalyptic future, Hero, a bank robber, is released by the governor, who missions him to find his lost adopted daughter. Hero has very little time to escape the dangers of Ghostland, for after a few days the leather suit stuck to his skin will explode...

It was a much anticipated and exciting project: the meeting of the zaniest Japanese director with the wildest American actor. And beyond all our hopes, they speak the same language! Prisoners of the Ghostland  is indeed the cinematographic orgy we expected, led by this modern day Snake Plissken, whose main worry is his testicles. With such a cosmopolitan cast, Sono Sion delivers a crazy psychedelic object that makes us wonder once again: 'what the heck are we watching right now?"
