Hiho Night finally returns! The pandemonium festival brought with the collaboration between the Tokyo International Fantastic Film Festival and the film magazine Eiga Hiho returns in this film festival! Come experience a deep night where you will question the meaning of “comedy”!! While screening three films, we also have ready an all-night rich program packed with “tondemo” (outrageous) films. During the intermissions, we will hold a public press conference for the production of Death Kappa, will host an event for Noboru Iguchi’s latest film, RoboGeisha, will show a collection of rare reels and more! The screening lineup includes the Japan premiere screening of THE HANGOVER which marked a breathtaking mega-hit, drawing in boxoffice revenue of over 200 million dollars in the US; the special screening of SUKANPIN WALK as tribute to the great achievements of actor Tatsuo Yamada who regrettably passed away this year; the Japan premiere screening of “ROBOT TAEKWON V”, an amazing national super robot animation of Korea which had not been screened in Japan for a while. Just look forward to what we have planned for you! Looking for great works? Come to the fun house! And experience the true comedy!!
 The Hangover

The Hangoverジャパンプレミア
(2009/USA/100 min./Presented by Warner Home Video)
Director: Todd Philips
A breathtaking mega-hit film which recorded box-office revenue of over 200 million dollars in the US as it drew attention with its powerful script! A group of guys party themselves away to celebrate a friend’s last day of freedom before marriage. When they get up the next day with a hangover, they do not recollect anything from the night before! To add to their surprise, the groom is missing, and in his place they find a tiger and a baby in the room!! As if that was not enough, they also get attacked by weirdoes… What on earth has happened during the blackout? Where is the groom? A great comedy that proved star cast is not the only way to a box office hit.
