MONSTER MOVIE MARATHON PREVIEW: “Vampire Hunter D”

I’m kicking off the marathon with Vampire Hunter D, the first movie from 1985! It’s based on the novels written by Hideyuki Kikuchi, and the film was directed by Toyoo Ashida. Mr. Toyoo’s career is pretty extensive and goes back as far as the mid-sixties. He developed his unique style working on Dr.Slump, and founded production studio Studio Live. He also co-founded Japanese Animation Creators Association (JAniCA) along with the late-Satoshi Kon. Expect to get a nice mix of action and strong, fantastically dark adventures in this one!
