Take a lesson you will never forget in Lesson of the Evil, the controversial new thriller from the prolific Miike Takashi (Thirteen Assassins, For Love's Sake). Based on the two-part novel by horror author Kishi Yusuke, Lesson of the Evil introduces us to Hasumi Seiji, one of the most conniving villains ever in the history of cinema. In a major reversal of the heroic persona he built up with the Umizaru series, Ito Hideaki stars as a charming high school teacher who will blackmail fellow teachers, have sex with his students and even kill his way towards self-preservation. After the film's seemingly normal first half, Miike (who also wrote the script) does away with restrained storytelling and goes all out to create a finale massacre that is bloody, disturbing and as powerful as anything Miike has done before.
Hasumi Seiji (Ito Hideaki) is the new English teacher at the elite Shinko Academy. Handsome, charming and an expert problem solver, Seiji is virtually liked by almost everyone in the school. However, Seiji's façade begins to give way when he uses an extreme way to deal with a demanding father who is harassing the school over his bullied daughter. Soon, Seiji is blackmailing fellow teachers and expanding his power over the rest of the school. One suspicious student decides to investigate Seiji's past, but he doesn't realize that Seiji has planted microphones throughout the school and has begun planning his retaliation.
