Set in Kyushu during the Meiji era, a blind girl, named Takiri, and the blind monster from a nearby lake, named Nebula, fight against greedy developers who threaten to take over her family's land. Using an all puppet human cast and a fantastic monster suit, it offers a new aesthetic in the world of kaiju films.
"Keizo Murase, the designer of the original Varan suit (and special effects whiz for The H-Man,Mighty Peking Man, and more) was tapped to create Howl’s GORGEOUS monster suit."
"This is a haunting, atmospheric little fable that takes classic kaiju thriller story beats and marries them with the eerie mood and structure of a traditional Japanese ghost story. Director/writer/producer Daisuke Sato points to the Daimajin trilogy as one of their biggest inspirations, and that’s an easy connection to see. But the setting, mood, tone and handcrafted nature of the miniatures and puppets also made me think of Bram Stoker’s Dracula from 1992 and 1964’s Kwaidan. Spooky but beautiful films where theatrical artificiality is a front-and-center artistic choice that enhances the haunting, dreamlike atmosphere."
This is a 35 min short with a 35 min making of. It is one of the best kaiju motion pictures made this century.
