PERFECT BLUE "Pafekuto buru" (Satoshi Kon, 1997 / 81 minutes /18 A / Japanese with English subtitles) Mima Kirigoe is a singer who leaves her trio to become an actress, a career move that angers her fans, who prefer to see her as the pop idol. Plagued by self-doubt and tormented by humiliating compromises, she begins to be stalked, in her waking and sleeping moments, by an alter ego who claims to be "the real Mima", until she collapses into madness as her coworkers are brutally slain around her.
VAMPIRE HUNTER D (Toyoo Ashida, 1985 / 80 mins / 18A / Japanese with English subtitles) A young girl requests the help of a vampire hunter to kill the vampire who has bitten her, and thus prevent her from becoming a vampire herself.
NINJA SCROLL (Yoshiaki Kawajiri, 1993 / 94 / 18A / Japanese with English subs) A vagabond swordsman is aided by a beautiful ninja girl and a crafty spy in confronting a demonic clan of killers - with a ghost from his past as their leader - who are bent on overthrowing the Tokugawa Shogunate.
