Over in a forgotten corner of a near-future Tokyo sits Black Fuji, a mountain of garbage and unwanted junk, from discarded appliances to the bodies of whining mothers-in-law, the mountain is home to Tokyo's dirty secrets. Through a combination of toxic waste and the souls of rejected household objects something is resurrecting the corpses that litter the mountain, and infusing them with an insatiable hunger for living human flesh! Meanwhile, at a fire-extinguisher factory at the foot of Black Fuji, a pair of employees are capitalizing on their boss absence to practice their jujitsu. The older of the two none-to-bright buddies is convinced that he can make a true champion out of his younger pal. He s also convinced that he s dying, so passing along his wrestling wisdom must be done quickly. Indeed it must - pretty soon, the pair will have their hands full, fighting off the hordes of the living dead!

The film is meant to be a comedy, there is no horror in spite of the zombies. It does have some slow scenes. The movie can be watched in English or Japanese with subtitles. The extras have only subtitles.
Interesting cult film.
Parental Guide: F-bomb. Male rear nudity. No sex, suggested near oral sex.
But what is it like? Well, erm, I don't know, really. It's quite unlike anything I've ever seen. It's one part zombie film, one part romance, one part buddy comedy, one part wrestling / ju-jitsu, one part action thriller - and every single one of them is completely nuts.
As a whole, the film never really flows because it just jumps so ludicrously from one element to the other, but it's certainly never boring or predictable and it is quite often very funny indeed. Perfect for fans of indie curios and suplexing zombies.
Two friends Fujio and Mitsuo work in a Fire Extinguisher factory, often practising Jujitsu moves on each other, until their boss comes in and reprimands them. Fujio bashes him on the head with an Extinguisher, killing him, and the duo decide to bury him on 'Black Fuji' - a volcano in the centre of Tokyo which has been used by the citizens as a dumping ground for bodies, waste and unwanted electricals. However, when the dead begin to rise, the two friends have to make a decision on their futures...
Like many Japanese movies, there are slight culture differences that don't quite translate properly over here. One of those is their approach to sexuality - there are several scenes which don't quite feel right, such as a Gym Teacher sexually abusing his students (and murdering one of them!) and a perverted old man looking up the dress of a schoolgirl lying face down in some garbage. It doesn't do much to alleviate the stereotype of Japanese schoolgirls being pawed at by seedy business-men.
Most of the humour seems to come from the double-act of Fujio and Mitsuo, but there are some surprising plot twists to the story too. It doesn't follow the standard formula for a horror movie, or even a comedy movie. It is quite abstract and surreal at times, including an animated segment in the middle of the film, as well as complete changes of tone and location.Read more ›
