Takashi Miike's 'Shield of Straw' Fantasia Fest Review

The most enthusiastic audiences in the world are in Montreal -- specifically at Fantasia Fest, the horror-fantasy-genre extravaganza that opened last night with a double bill of Warner Bros.: “The Conjuring,” to which Fantasia fans were provided a sneak peak before its theatrical opening today; and -- more intriguingly-- Japanese madman Takashi Miike’s less-than-lunatic “Shield of Straw,” a production of Warner Brothers Japan that got a less than lukewarm reception at Cannes this year, but found its way into the hearts of the Fantasian genre nuts filling the grand Imperial theater off the Rue Ste. Catherine.
