ROME (AP) - A horror film by cult director Takashi Miike about a school teacher-turned-serial killer of students is one of the opening night features at the Rome Film Festival.

"Lesson of the Evil" by the Japanese master director of gore is among the films in competition at the festival, which begins on Friday and runs through Nov. 17.
