TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 23 December 2015
This 2010 Japanese splatter film sees kika return home to find her cannibal mother and and lunatic uncle eating her dad. As she tries to escape, so a meteorite strikes Mum, but not before she rips Kikas heart out and a zombie plague is born dividing Japan in two. So far you’re only a few minutes in and the rest is too complicated to explain without giving the story away.
Surprisingly this opens to a very upbeat boppy title tune and although the special effects tend to be rather plastic looking, they are quite innovative what with cars made out of zombies, zombies using their babies on umbilical cords as weapons, multi legged and armed zombies and giants made from thousands of zombies... crazy.....just crazy.
The two disc set comes in a seemingly ordinary DVD case. The Disc 1 is the shorter international movie featuring play and chapters, Disc two is the full version and also has added features including a making of and trailer. Both have Japanese audio and English subtitles. Watch the second disc, the first is irrelevant.
This isn’t meant to be taken seriously as the opening scenes soon show and you’re 42 minutes in before the title come up, it’s a bit like ‘Starship Troopers’ meets the Reavers from ’Firefly’ all wrapped up in a manga style ‘Clockwork Orange’ musical ballet. If you like gore and don’t want deep meaningful dialogue, then this is for you. Action and blood all the way, it’s got to be a manic ***** view.

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!

I turned it off 20 minutes in. The first ever japanese movie (or any asian movie) that I have turned off. It's absolutely terrible.

Also when you have a budget that's clearly this low, why on earth are you using cgi? The cgi is simply terrible. It reminded me or the cgi used for the Xenomorph in Alien 3.

I liked the film. I was just disappointed that it says the item has one disc (It came with one disc), but on the back of the blu-ray artwork, It says two disc special edition? I would just like to know if I'm missing something? is it a misprint? & has anyone else noticed this?

I'd just like the details on here to match up with the details on the disc case and what is actually inside the case.

All in all i enjoyed the film.

Good Film lots and lots and lots of blood very funny in places. The making of video shows how little money or time they had to make the movie and is worth a watch. Overall I liked it

One HELL of a film. Soo funny it took my 3 tries to watch the whole film. Of you like gore then this is the one, if you don't like gore then this is still very
Funny. When I say gore, I mean, not of blood. But like I said
, fun.: )

I love Japanese films and I'm glad I have bought this one, a great horror\ comedy. A food storyline, its random, gory, funny and daft at times but well worth a watch. If you like dead sushi you will love this
