HIFF Spring Showcase starts tomorrow 

The Hawaii International Film Festival’s Spring Showcase starts up tomorrow with a lineup of films that run the gamut of the awesomely serious to the awesomely absurd.

Like the film trailer listed above, “Yamagata Scream.”  So, the premise behind this movie is that a lovelorn school teacher is taking her class full of girls up to a shrine known to bring about true love.  I guess they never heard about Good Luck Chuck.

ANYWAY, as they search for this shrine, they get caught up in a battle between the villagers and a zombie samurai.

You had me at zombie samurai.

Well, this is just one of the many films that are available to you at this year’s Spring Showcase.

The Spring Showcase runs from April 3-9.  For more information on the films and when they’re being shown, check out the HIFF Interactive Schedule and a synopsis of each movie.

“Yamagata Scream” will be showing this Sunday at 9:15pm. And yes, I will be there.
