Tokyo Ghoul presents a world in which superhuman beings known as ghouls live among us. An adaptation of Sui Ishida’s dark fantasy manga, Tokyo Ghoul presents a world in which superhuman beings known as ghouls live among us. Possessing great strength, regenerative powers and retractable tentacle-like weapons, they can only survive on human flesh (and coffee). Into this world stumbles Kaneki (Masataka Kubota), a shy, orphaned college student who survives a ghoul attack only after some of his assailant’s organs are unwittingly transplanted into him. Now a half-ghoul, Kaneki is unable to stomach normal food and must embrace the inhuman cravings in his head if he is to stay alive.

Tokyo Ghoul is screening as part of Manga Movie Marathon and a pass for the event is available for £27/£22 or for FREE with a LIFF 2017 Pass or see 6 films for the price of 5 (available by phone or in person only) - details here.
