Mutant Martian Cockroach Massacre in Miike's Terra Formars. Pre-orders for September 15th.



TERRA FORMARS

Takashi Miike is one of the most notorious directors of Japan, infamous for his guerrilla style film making. Not only does he like to tackle exploitation themes (Audition), but he also likes to adapt mangas and mangalikes that others wouldn't even tough with a 10-foot pole. Ichii the Killer and Dead or Alive come to mind. And he is very prolific about it, often releasing 3 or more movies a year.

That doesn't mean he only does exploitation, but he seems to need a dose of extra weird (Yakuza Apocalypse) in between his more conventional movies (13 Assassins). In case of his latest film, Terra Formars, mutated martian cockroaches settle a long standing score with a group of human explorers. And boy do they have some pent up aggression to work through.

The year is 2557 and a team of 6 astronauts are sent to Mars after moss and cockroaches were supposed to terraform the planet for the last 500 years. What they find is a species of aggressive bug-men that start ripping them apart. 42 years later, a second ship is sent after them. This time, the crew of 15 are convicted criminals that have been genetically altered with the DNA of different bug species.

When activated, they turn into a super-powered insect hybrids that stand a fighting chance against the masses of enemies. With gore aplenty, insane ideas and some serious bug-on-bug violence, Miike-fans will be satisfied. At least for the time it takes him to finish his adaptation of Blade of the Immortal.
