From the director of ‘Ninja Scroll’ comes a newly restored version of the neo-noir cult classic that is definitely not for the faint of heart. An aeons-long war between humans and interdimensional demons is coming to a close. A human agent of the secret Black Guard is paired with a female demon and assigned to protect an ancient diplomat, who is crucial to the finalizing of the peace. A pinnacle of 80’s anime sleaze, ‘Wicked City’ plays like a blood- and semen-soaked softcore exploration of deep, dark fantasies. Awash in stark neon colours and featuring mutating genitalia that would make David Cronenberg squirm: Spider vagina dentata, do we need to say more?
