Asia Shock Event Reviewed in The Asian Reporter

Mike Street, who recently reviewed Patrick Galloway's unstoppable guidebook to dark Asian cinema, Asia Shock: Horror and Dark Cinema from Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, & Thailand, for The Asian Reporter, was luckly enuogh to be at Galloway's reading, screening, and book signing at legendary Powell's City of Books in Portland. The full review of the event is online here, and below is a sneak preview:
