Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

One of the most notorious J-horror films ever made, Takashi Miike’s Audition exploded onto the festival circuit at the turn of the century to a chorus of awards and praise. The film would catapult Miike to the international scene and pave the way for such other genre delights as Ichii the Killer and The Happiness of the Katakuris.

Recent widower Shigharu Aoyama is advised by his son to find a new wife, agreeing Shigeharu seeks the advice of a colleague having been out of the dating scene for many years. Taking advantage of their position as a film company they stage an audition. Interviewing a series of women, Shigeharu becomes enchanted by Asami, a quiet, 24-year-old woman, who is immediately responsive to his charms. But soon things take a very dark and twisted turn as we find that Asami isn’t what she seems to be…

Pulling the audience into a story that will lead to one of the most harrowing climaxes in cinema history, Miike twists and turns us through delirious editing and shocking visuals for one of the most depraved nightmares of all time!

The Audition

Personally the film is great. now for the packaging it is odd how they send 1 title per package but I kind of get it so yea. its all good to me.

Review of Fantastic service

Great speedy service given the current situation. Ordered with another bluray and they both came individually packaged in bubble wrap which gives me confidence knowing items will arrive safely and in top condition. A very Happy Zavvi customer here.
