Worthy but flawed

Girls, Dance with the Dead

Onna no Ko Yo Shitai to Odore
2015 / 70m - Japan
Comedy, Horror
Girls, Dance with the Dead poster

A light and shallow comedy/horror film that is little more than a promotional video for some or other Japanese idol band. Even so there are some surprisingly solid moments here, with director Kayoko Asakura displaying an aptness for dark comedy and even drama. Not a great film, but not as terrible as you might assume based on the premise alone.
