Death Gawd

Just about anything has a license to be extreme in the world of Japanese comics, especially when martial artists shoot fireballs from their hands and fifty-foot-tall robots are commonplace. Death Note is no exception. The comic is a dark tale about a Japanese high school student (and it is always a Japanese high school student) who happens upon a notebook dropped by a death god that can kill anyone simply by writing his or her name in it. Creepy, dude.

The latest incarnation, Death Note II: The Last Name, is a live-action film based on the Death Note comic that follows the path of the would-be god Light as he continues scrawling names in his little black book to rid the world of all evil.

The film will also screen at the following locations:

AMC Desert Ridge 18
