‘Top Knot Detective’ heads to Horror Channel FrightFest 17’

Top Knot Detective-Sheimasu Screaming

As we inch closer and closer to HORROR CHANNEL FRIGHTFEST there is more news on films with high anticipation. One is the “documentary” about a 90’s samurai detective story series called TOP KNOT DETECTIVE. Only shown in Japan and Australia with a huge underground following filmmakers Aaron McCann and Dominic Pearce bring the story to life. TOP KNOT DETECTIVE will show at the Prince Charles Cinema on August 28th. Read all the official details on the screening ahead and if attending do not miss this one!


Top Knot Detective is about to make its English debut at the Prince Charles Cinema in London on the 28th of August 2017 as part of the 2017 Horror Channel Fright Fest.


Top Knot Detective was shot in Australia and Japan and produced in conjunction with Screenwest, Screen Australia and SBS-Viceland and is the debut feature for Writer/Directors Aaron McCann and Dominic Pearce and Producer Lauren Brunswick.


In the early 90’s, a little known Japanese Samurai/Detective series hit Australia where it quickly became a cult hit. In Japan it was called ‘Ronin Suiri Tentai’ (translation: ‘Deductive Reasoning Ronin’) but in Australia it was affectionately known as ‘Top Knot Detective’. A wild and crazy series about a wandering samurai doing battle with sexy ninja, giant robots and the occasional throbbing penis monster.


Created by Aaron McCann and Dominic Pearce as a throwback to the films and TV shows that were broadcast in the 90s, this “documentary” tells the story of director/star: Takashi Takamoto, who couldn’t act, can’t fight and most certainly can’t write a TV show. Luckily through various underworld connections, he had the means to turn himself into a superstar – but there was a price to pay for letting his ego run wild.
