My thoughts… Awesome! It’s John Carpenter’s Halloween meets Kinji Fukasaku’s Battle Royale mixed with a touch of Quentin Tarantino! 3 influential directors, 2 great films, 1 amazing new female filmmaker! Gigi Saul Guerrero is the female counterpart of Robert Rodriguez – one of my favorite directors! Most of her films, like most of Rodriguez’s work, are heavily influenced by her Mexican roots but Halloween vs Battle Royale is a cool Asian diversion!
