"Nightmare Detective 2" Trailer

I case you weren't privy to such information, I am what you might call a Shinya Tsukamoto fan-boy. I've yet to encounter one of the legendary director's productions that I haven't been completely enthralled with. And while his last effort, the immensely entertaining "Nightmare Detective" -- a twisty little tale about a private investigator who has the ability to enter people's dreams -- wasn't nearly as Lynchian or outright bizarre as his previous films, I was still blown away by the man's ability to craft an intricate, multi-layered story that is both dramatically sound and impossibly unsettling.

If you've yet to experience Tsukamoto's work for yourself, immediately track down a copy of "Tetsuo: The Iron Man," "Haze," and "Hiruko The Goblin" and prepare to be awed.

While drifting through a night wrought with unbreakable insomnia, I stumbled across an English-subbed version of the "Nightmare Detective 2" trailer, which, of course, blew my feeble little mind into thousands of chewy, easily-digestible pieces. Tsukamoto's knack for eerie imagery and original storytelling appear to be intact, though I can't say for sure until I've gotten my grubby little mitts on a copy of the entire film.

In the meantime, feel free to enjoy the trailer:

Todd has been a slave to the horror genre for as long as he can remember. After cutting his teeth on late-night Cinemax schlock and the low-budget offerings found on the classic USA program "Up All Night," our hero moved valiantly into the world of sleazy obscura, consuming the oddest films from around the world with the reckless abandon of a man without fear or reason. When he isn't sitting mindlessly in front of a television set, he can be found stuffing music, video games, and various literary scribblings into his already cluttered mindscape.
