Teaser and trailer for Tokyo: The Last Megalopolis, Akio Jissoji’s 1988 live-action adaptation of the 1971 literary epic with character design by H.R. Geiger. In the movie, a demonic psychic named Kato uses his powers in an attempt to resurrect an ancient evil soul which has haunted Tokyo for over 1,000 years in an attempt to rain destruction down upon the city. The soul belongs to a man named Masakado who was executed for his crimes against humanity, and it’s up to his pure-hearted descendent Keiko to top Kato before the ritual is completed.
