There is another Miike-related horror title out in the U.S. now--a Hong 
Kong/Japan/South Korea co-production called Three... Extremes. It's an 
omnibus with three segments, one directed by Miike, one by Fruit Chan and 
one by Park Chan-wook. It premiered in Hong Kong and South Korea and played 
at Venice last year and is in a limited theatrical run in the U.S. right 
now. It doesn't look like it's come to Japan yet. Ebert reviewed it a few 
days ago and gave it 3 1/2 stars.


There's also a new Kurosawa Kiyoshi horror film in the works, called Loft 
(Shi no otome). I'm not sure if this is even finished yet, but the Korean 
company Mirovision has a trailer and some info up on their web site.
