Thom and Tom wrap Seijun Suzuki month by discussing Youth of the Beast, Toyko Drifter, and Branded to Kill side by side in their Wall To Wall Carpet segment (26:40). But first, your Carpeteers assess Takashi Miike’s infamously brutal cult classic yakuza gore-fest Ichi the Killer in perhaps their ickiest Carpet Cleaning job yet (3:10).

WE MADE IT TO 50! SUZUKI MONTH CONTINUES WITH TOKYO DRIFTER, PLUS IN OR OUT?
The Carpet unfurls across Japan’s technicolor streets and snow-kissed valleys as Tom and Thom whistle their way through Seijun Suzuki’s wild 1966 film Tokyo Drifter (41:40). But first, your Carpeteers are joined by Rad design man and Fringe Drinking co-host Ryan Williams to play a little In or Out?, dishing takes on Zack Snyder, found footage films, and watching movies with subtitles(2:30).

WELCOME SUZUKI MONTH, PLUS HAPPYTIME MURDERS AND SUPPORT THE GIRLS
