Remember a young actress named Chiaki Kuriyama? Sure you do. She played Gogo Yubari, the mace-wielding bodyguard who dressed like a Japanese schoolgirl in Kill Bill Volume I. She was also in the disturbingly violent but oh-so-cool Battle Royale, and while most of her work has gotten little if any exposure here in the States, she has two dozen acting credits listed on IMDB. The trailer for her latest film, Exte: Hair Extensions, or Ekusute as it is known in its native language, will be released in Japan on February 17, and based on the trailer posted over on Youtube, this is one freaky little flick.Read the whole post: Link, but then you gotta see the trailer: Exte (ã‚¨ã‚¯ã‚¹ãƒ†). Here's the hot hot Wikipedia action: Link. (thanks, Susannah Breslin!)
Reader comment: Stacia says,
For a moment, I thought the image was from the film Uzumaki, which has a similar image involving a girl with crazy hair (see youtube link, about 27 seconds in). However, Uzumaki isn't about hair extensions - it's about spirals. Link.
