Fantastic Fest announces its Closing Night film


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Fresh off killer turns in Venice and Toronto, Takashi Miike’s “13 Assassins” has just been selected as the Closing Night films for Fantastic Fest.

Here’s the film’s plot:

The noble samurai Shinzaemon Shimada is secretly commissioned to assassinate the evil Lord Naritsugu after his bloody rise to power. Assembling an elite group of samurai, Shinzaemon plots to ambush the Lord on his annual journey home from Edo. The courageous samurai know it’s a suicide mission because the Lord is closely protected by a deadly entourage led by Shinzaemon’s nemesis, the ruthless Hanbei. To capture Lord Naritsugu, Shinzaemon and his skilled samurai transform a mountain village into an intricate death trap. But when the Lord finally arrives, the assassins discover they are outnumbered fifteen to one. The day has come for our 13 fearless assassins to face death in a monumental battle of fiery explosions, showers of arrows and clashing swords.

Fantastic Fest will open with Matt Reeves’ “Let Me In,” a moody remake of “Let the Right One In.” The festival runs Sept. 23-30, in Austin, Texas.
