Preview- Howl From Beyond the Fog (Bluray)

In November 2019 we were excited to show the trailer, now SRS is proud to announce the latest Kaiju addition to our growing line, Daisuke Sato’s beautiful and amazing “Howl from Beyond the Fog.”

Set in Kyushu during the Meiji era, a blind girl, named Takiri, and the blind monster from a nearby lake, named Nebula, fight against greedy developers who threaten to take over her family’s land.  Using an all puppet human cast and a fantastic monster suit, it offers a new aesthetic in the world of kaiju films.  

From monstersconquertheworld.com:

“Keizo Murase, the designer of the original Varan suit (and special effects whiz for The H-Man, Mighty Peking Man, and more) was tapped to create Howl’s GORGEOUS monster suit.”

“This is a haunting, atmospheric little fable that takes classic kaiju thriller story beats and marries them with the eerie mood and structure of a traditional Japanese ghost story.  Director/writer/producer Daisuke Sato points to the Daimajin trilogy as one of their biggest inspirations, and that’s an easy connection to see.  But the setting, mood, tone and handcrafted nature of the miniatures and puppets also made me think of Bram Stoker’s Dracula from 1992 and 1964’s Kwaidan.  Spooky but beautiful films where theatrical artificiality is a front-and-center artistic choice that enhances the haunting, dreamlike atmosphere.”

Limited edition pre-sales started Thurs 9/24/20 with copies expected to ship by late Nov. Only 1000 will be sold on Bluray, which will include reversible artwork featuring both pieces of the artwork from Tomoaki Matsumoto and Matt Frank, a 35 min making of and is region free.
