Get It Before The New Year: Funky Forest / Warped Forest Box Set

 Here's two goodies you might want to get before New Year's this week.

Pre-order $49.99 + Shipping
Releasing March 2022 

This is pure batsh*t Japanese insane right here. This is what you would show friends to explain how weird Japan can get.
Here's the synopsis: 

Animated kaiju dance numbers, an organic-instrument-playing classroom, over-extended nipple lactation, and forest concerts with nature used in place of turntables--these are just some of the far-out scenes that await in the dizzying head-trip, FUNKY FOREST: THE FIRST CONTACT ナイスの森 THE FIRST CONTACT.

Concocted by the devious minds of Katsuhito Ishii (SHARK SKIN MAN AND PEACH HIP GIRL, PARTY 7) and two prolific advertisement directors, Hajime Ishimine and Shunichiro Miki (THE WARPED FOREST), FUNKY FOREST took the U.S. by storm when it debuted in 2005, playing numerous genre film festivals and winning awards, eventually becoming an internet-age WTF cult classic. With a who's-who cast of Japanese stars including Tadanobu Asano (ICHI THE KILLER), Rinko Kikuchi (PACIFIC RIM), and even Hideaki Anno (Creator of NEON GENESIS EVANGELION), FUNKY FOREST gathers some of the leading figures of Japan's millennial new wave of outrageously original pop cinema, and then sets them loose to confuse, amuse, repulse, and freak you the f#%k out.

The Forest Collection Box Set includes Funky Forest: The First Contact (2005) & the never released in America on DVD/Blu-ray or streaming The Warped Forest (2011). We're huge fans of the first movie and our utterly stunned it's sequel will finally be available in North America. As of writing this over 50% of the box sets are sold out.
