DESCRIPTION

The mad Katakuri family bury a lot of dead bodies in Takashi Miike’s musical comedy horror.

After a series of failures, the extremely unlucky Katakuri family decide to settle down together and open a small hotel in a quiet place that should soon have a road. However, their very first guest commits a suicide. Fearing a bad reputation, the Katakuris bury his body in the backyard—just like they do with two other visitors that die in an accident. The dead are buried with songs, dancing and eccentric performances from the family members, and soon join their merry activities.

Takashi Miike is among the most prolific contemporary directors in Japan and works in a variety of genres. Produced on a very modest budget, The Happiness of the Katakuris is a sitcom with elements of horror, clay animation, and karaoke.
