Double Feature: Death Note & Death Note II: The Last Name (Japan, 2006, both Rated M).
Light Yagami finds the "Death Note" - a notebook which will cause the death of anyone whose name is written in its pages. He proceeds to start ridding the world of its criminals. A genius detective - L - is assigned to find and catch the perpetrator! This is an amazing movie... a thinking person's "thriller/horror" (without the gore), a "battle of wits", and a "detective story" all rolled into one! Based on the Japanese manga of the same name.
Rated 8.0 and 7.4 on IMDB, respectively!
(Japanese, with English subtitles)
This is the first time in 7 years these two movies have been shown together on the big screen in Australia!
You can book your tickets below.
"'Death Note' alone is a wonderful elaborate horror film about power and fate. The direction is dark often sleek, with Tatsuya Fujiwara giving a memorable performance as Light, while Ken'ichi Matsuyama is twisted and entertaining as the sugar fiend, L who watches and waits with sheer patience. I enjoyed this film immensely ... Ultimately power corrupts, and Kaneko's 'Death Note' is an entertaining, creepy, and beautifully written horror film about the power of death placed in the hands of someone with the best of intentions." - Cinema Crazed
