Overview
From the director of 'Versus' and 'Azumi', comes a blood-soaked tale of revenge starring Yumiko Shaku ('Princess Blade').

Detective Kanzaki Kohei (Shosuke Tanihara) is hunting a serial killer whose gruesome trademark is to tear the hearts out of his victims while they are still alive. His investigation suddenly turns personal when his bride-to-be Mina becomes the next victim on their wedding day. Mina meanwhile, finds herself at the Gate of Rage on the cusp of the afterlife.

As a murdered soul, she has three options: to enter paradise, haunt the world as a ghost, or to torment her killer, but be condemned to hell afterwards. With twelve days to decide, time is running out as the killer plans to strike again.

Helmed by acclaimed director Ryuhei Kitamura ('Azumi', 'Versus'), 'Sky High' features a pounding soundtrack, desolate urban nightscapes, and the sleek, kinetic swordsplay which has become the signature style of Kitamura, Japan's answer to Quentin Tarantino.
