Sôichi Umezawa, JPN 2017
Art so bad.. it kills!
After studying in Tokyo, Kaori returns to Aina Academy to finish her prep classes for art school. Quickly outshining her jealous classmates, she soon becomes the star of the class when she discovers a bag of old, mysterious clay and uses it for sculpting assignments. Things begin to get strange, however, when students’ projects are destroyed and one of Kaori’s classroom rivals disappears.
Absurdity and gore ensue as a possessed pile of clay begins terrorizing students at an art school. Soichi Umezawa brings together gore and silliness in this Japanese splatter movie. Vampire Clay is by no means a perfect movie, but it is very entertaining. If you feel like watching a gleefully absurd and visually engaging film, be sure to join our screening!
