Blade Licking Thieves Podcast: The Happiness of the Katakuris

Will this be a treat, or another trick?

It’s the annual Blade Licking Thieves Halloween episode; of course, as seems to have become something of a tradition for the show, that means we’re reviewing yet another Takashi Miike film. This time Grant, The Heat, and Zen watch the joyfully bizarre genre mashup that’s part family drama, part dark comedy, part musical, and many parts absurd: The Happiness of the Katakuris. Enjoy the show!
