Take the What Anime Movie Should You Watch This Halloween?
| Paprika 100% |
Director Satoshi Kon is a true dreamer, and in Paprika, he explores the concept. A device designed to allow doctors to see into their patients' dreams is stolen, and before you know it, dreams are taking over the real world...
| Darkside Blues |
Based on a lesser-known manga series by Vampire Hunter D author Hideyuki Kikuchi, anyone who liked the D film but wants something different will enjoy this. Darkside is a mysterious stranger who appears in a slightly western post-apocalyptic future and shakes things up.
| Metropolis |
Based on Osamu Tezuka's 1949 manga, which was only loosely related to the 1920s silent film, the movie offers a slightly more adult take on many of the themes in Tezuka's Astro Boy-- particularly robots.
| Perfect Blue |
Singer Mima attempts to turn herself into an actress, only to have all of her co-workers and supporters murdered one at a time. Satoshi Kon directs.
Now, of course there are plenty more anime flicks to be had out there-- not to mention all the various anime TV series that would be a good choice for Halloween night, like Hell Girl or an arc or two of Ghost Hunt --but I'm sure I missed some, like Ghost in the Shell and Akira. Are you going to be watching something on Halloween? Do you know what yet?
