13 Assassins (Jûsan-nin no shikaku) sees director Takashi Miike, the man behind such uncompromising and unforgettable movies as Audition and Ichi The Killer indelibly stamping his trademark style on the Samurai genre with an ultra-violent, all-action, blood-spattered epic that is out now on DVD and Blu-ray.
Explore a world of clips, images, review links and much more at the official 13 Assassins fanhub, but what you won’t get there though is the chance to win our ‘money-can’t-buy’ prize of a 13 Assassins sword (okay, it’s a letter opener sword but it comes in a natty box!) and a copy of the film on Blu-ray.
Read on for a synopsis and details of how to enter the giveaway…
In the era of the Shogun, an evil young lord rapes and kills, assured of immunity by law. But he didn’t count on the Thirteen Assassins. A feared secret force, each with their own deadly skill, the Assassins undertake a suicide mission to wipe out the Lord. As he embarks on a perilous journey, the Assassins close off his escape route and ambush him in a village of death. But little do they know, they are outnumbered four to one by the Lord’s team of bodyguards.
