Here’s an anime from Ghibli Studios.I think it’s a steampunk film.The film’s not meant to be set in any specific time,not past or future,but in an alternative present where mechanics haven’t evolved past the steam engine.The film is about good and bad witches and wizards and spells cast by both.One of the best aspects of anime is you can get some really bizarre and unique stories.Western animation seems to stick to a set of strict plot guidelines,but Asian stuff can be really out-there.I did notice after a wee bit that Christian Bale was voicing the main guy and all i could think was Batman with that forced husky voice.Maybe the subtitled version would be better.The subs would be more accurate;they change the dialogue to sync with the lips which were animated originally for the Japanese script.

Wow.What the fuck did i just watch?This film has some good bits (i.e. Mia Farrow getting her kit off at every turn about ) and some bad bits (i.e. the drug trip Satan rape scene ).Most of the film is a bit predictable and the ending isn’t what you’d expect,I won’t spoil it.The gist of the film is a young couple move to a new apartment and she gets plugged and her looks go from model to holocaust survivor from scene to scene.Long story short the baby is the spawn of the devil.
