Product Description

The absolutely insane Yoshihiro Nishimura, director of Tokyo Gore Police and the amazing Vampire Girl Vs. Frankenstein Girl, is back with another foray into disturbing wonder with the Japanese zombie movie Helldriver.

An alien-spawned, mysterious mist blankets the northern half of Japan, transforming those who inhale it into ravenous, flesh-eating zombies.

Plunged into chaos, Japan is torn in two: the southern half of the country, where the populace remains untouched by the deadly gas, lives behind a heavily-fortified wall, while the northern half is a lawless, zombie-infected wasteland.

Hope arrives in the form of Kika (Yumiko Hara), a beautiful high school girl armed with a chainsaw sword powered by an artificial heart. Recruited by the government, Kika leads a ragtag group of desperados on a secret mission into the zombie-infected wilds to exterminate zombie queen Rikka (Eihi Shiina from Audition, Tokyo Gore Police) and put an end to the plague of the living dead. But the road is fraught with a thriving zombie population that refuses to lay down and die!

5.0 out of 5 stars If you thought TGP was mad... 23 Oct 2012
Format:Blu-ray
I've seen quite a few of these Japanese splatter/comedy films and this one is probably one of the most mad, almost extreme. It's a satire on what Japan would do if there was a zombie-like outbreak and half of the country was quarantined off behind a wall. The fun partly comes from those who regard the zombies as still human and therefore should be cared for, and the others who regard them as no longer human and therefore should be destroyed.

Throw into the mix a poor girl - our hero (Yumiko Hara) - who's mother (Eihi Shiina) becomes the Queen of the zombies (not too much of a spoiler as this happens early in the film), and also a slightly disjointed format for storytelling - I've only watched the Director's Cut of the film, the Theatrical release version may be more linear (both versions on the Blu-ray) - and you have a wild ride where you really won't predict what's going to happen next.

This, like Tokyo Gore Police, is a Yoshihiro Nishimura-directed and written film, and it shows. This man, with a limited budget, can produce films full of inventiveness and originality way beyond the standard Hollywood fare, and more power to his elbow - even if he does use rather too much spurting-fake blood!

Sorry to report that I didn't get this from Amazon - I saw it cheaper elsewhere, which is unusual - but it's a film I recommend, so long as you can stand the inventive, but gory, violence (remember, it's NOT real!). I still prefer TGP though, just for the crocodile girl...

4.0 out of 5 stars Utterly bonkers! 14 April 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie is completely mental!
When a strange alien(looking something similar to DC's alien starfish Starro)attaches itself to Kika's sadistic mother,she gets possessed by the creature & turns into the zombie queen who has control over all the other zombies & rips out her daughter's heart,making it her own.
Kika is saved with the aid with an artificial heart,powering a chainsaw sword &,with a small band of survivors,sets out on a mission to rid Japan of the zombie plague once & for all.
It goes from one WTF moment to the next & there is so much squirting claret/body parts flying around it's completely OTT.
I like it,...but i dunno why!
