Dir. Sion Sono
With Chiaki Kuriyama, Miku Sato, Megumi Sato
35mm, 108 min

In this horrific, comedic, and mesmerizing film, director Sion Sono explores the dark undercurrents in the superficial world of beauty. Starring Chiaki Kuriyama (who made her international debut in Tarantino's “Kill Bill Vol. 1” as Lucy Liu's bodyguard/yakuza schoolgirl, Gogo Yubari), “Exte: Hair Extensions” starts with the mysterious delivery of human hair along with a dead girl with a shaved head to a beauty salon. Her corpse miraculously starts growing hair, which is then sold as hair extensions to young women—who are then found murdered. A truly unique horror tale as only Sono could tell it.
