“All’s well, that ends well.”
on 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.
