Be careful what you wish for.
ON June 5th, Funimation will release the horror film AS THE GODS WILL (神さまの言うとおり, Kamisama no Iutori, 2014) by cult director Takashi Miike (13 ASSASSINS, SUKIYAKI WESTERN DJANGO) in a Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Combo Pack. Miike was the first Japanese director to win the Maverick Director Award in competition at the 2014 Rome Film Festival.
High school student Shun Takahata is bored. Bored with the day-to-day monotony of school and life, he prays for change, for something exciting. The last thing he expects is for the gods to answer.
Up against terrifying creatures, from a talking Daruma doll to a sharp-clawed lucky cat, Shun and his classmates are forced to play deadly versions of children’s games. Many play, few survive. And as their numbers dwindle, they’re taken into a mysterious cube in the sky where they face more trials. The world is watching as God’s Children play, but when only a handful remain, distrust burns strongly between them. Who’s here to win, and who’s here to survive? One thing’s for sure — facing death is one way to cure boredom!
