A coach filled with chattering school girls drives down a motorway. One of the girls, timid, poetry-writing Mitsuko (Reina Triendl), bends down to pick up the pen she’s dropped on the floor. That very second, a razor-like gust of wind slices across the vehicle, leaving Mitsuko the only survivor. So opens Tag, the new gore-fest from Sion Sono, widely recognised as one of the most subversive film-makers in Japanese cinema today.

The film follows Mitsuko, her identity shifting from scene to scene, as she literally runs for her life from a series of malevolent forces. Although the premise is loosely adapted from the novel Riaru Onigokko by Yosuke Yamada, Sion Sono adds a further twist by solely populating this world with female characters. An entertaining, visually-remarkable and surreal modern horror.
