There’s no love in the Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day’s violence.
Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
I remember flipping through the film guide the one and only time I’ve attended the Vancouver Film Festival in 2001. There was a picture of a man hanging from hooks and the title “Ichi the Killer” underneath that gruesome photo. “This looks interesting,” I thought. I had never heard of Takashi Miike before that moment, but when I immediately watched Ichi the Killer his name was forever seared into my memory. That’s why when I heard his next movie, Audition, was opening in Austin I dragged my friends to see it and I was the only one even the slightest bit prepared for the dark turn that film took.
Ichi the Killer is wrong in every way a movie can possibly be wrong without taking a left turn into morbid, sickening Serbian Film territory. It’s gross, awful, but goofy and fun at the same time. And gory, did I mention gory?
Today’s picture comes from the special effects department on Ichi and features a rather unfortunate individual. Viva Miike! Click to enlargen.
If you have a behind the scenes shot you’d like to submit to this column, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Danger, danger! Tomorrow’s pic is a pop culture mashup way before it became popular.

Especially the episode he did for Masters of Horror that Showtime passed on. Christ, this guy's got some different ideas on hanging baskets.

just couldn't get into it. Prefer Audition, and so glad the planned American remake never came about.
