Product Description

WELCOME TO ZOMBIE WORLD!!

From the creators of Machine Girl , and Tokyo Gore Police, An alien-spawned, mysterious mist blankets the northern half of Japan, transforming those who inhale it into ravenous, flesh-eating zombies hellbent on devouring the surviving human populatin. Plunged into chaos, Japan is torn into 2 areas. The southern half of the country, where the population remains untouched by the deadly gas, lives behind a heavily-fortified wall, while the northern half is a lawless, zombie-infected wasteland.

If you enjoy the occasional film featuring vehicles constructed from body parts and 8-limbed zombie sword fights, then this is probably right up your alley. For a Tokyo Gore Shock subgenre I give this an "A."

This typical/low-budget Tokyo Shocker begins with an odd man chumming a pack of some manner of zombie-demons with severed human body parts. As they feed on the anthro-carrion our chummer "fishes" for deadite heads using a sharp hook at the end of a rope. Then he removes something that could only be described as an evil wishbone growing out of their foreheads. We later learn that these "horns" are sued as street drugs, unstable explosives and are the source of undeadity in these zombies. When things get out of hand a random chick (our hero, Kika) with chainsaw-swords and some mean stripper pole skills comes to the rescue...what ensues is just plain silly...a truck flies through the air and Jenga's a 50' tower of zombie-demons, one of which a spine with a head at the end of it growing out of his head.

This entrail-rich gem is typical of the genre. There are lots of arterial sprays unleashing floods of blood beyond reasonable human body's capacity, detonating body parts, dismemberment galore and, of course, Kika's backstory. As a young girl Kika came home to find her crazy evil mother (Eihi Shiina) and her Japanese punk-redneck uncle in the middle of making sushi out of her father's legs--in front of him with his legs flesh-picked knee down. Out of nowhere a meteor strikes her bloodlusted mother "through" her chest. So naturally, she rips out Kika's heart and uses it as her own. Then she turns into some space-zombiism typhoid Mary and plagues Japan faster than in 28 Days Later.

5.0 out of 5 stars I want to meet the people who thought this movie up!!!! November 28, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
This is easily the most whacked out movie or thing I have ever seen ! It would be best watched after enjoying a fattie. The director at the beginning of the film suggests this,but recommends alcohol. But I recommend natures finest.There is alot of stuff in this movie and most of it never before on the big screen. First the main character is a smoking hot zombie killer who has been sexually abused by her uncle who is also her mothers lover.The zombies grow horns that are like explosive crack and are hunted by a drug syndacate. The zombies are able to meld together after being hacked apart.This is a run down of some of the stuff in this flick, baby zombie nunchaks, spider zombie with M-16 legs,japanese hitler,baby arms growing out of a zombies face that hold knife and fork to cut up flesh to eat, zombie head hail storm,lesbian zombies with action, I could go on and on.There is so much I am going to have to watch it again.The Japanese are the most bizarre in their fetishes and it is all in this movie.Oh yeah one more thing BLOOD,BLOOD,BLOOD !!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Helldriver is a helluva film! December 25, 2011
Format:DVD
As a fan of Yoshihiro Nishimura films in specific and weird Japanese films in general, I have taken to collecting such gems as Machine Girl, Tokoyo Gore Police, Alien vs. Ninja, Meatball Machine, Samurai Princess, Versus, Tokoyo Zombie, Hard Revenge Milly, and Oldboy and a bunch of other Takashi Miiki works. When I found out about the release of Helldriver, purchasing it was an easy decision to make. Truthfully, I am more than a little surprised that it didn't get more positive reviews by those who have watched it and posted here on Amazon. I mean, it's totall original, with plenty of weirdness, comedy, splatter, horror, and an absolutely absorbing rollercoaster storyline.

Kika (Yumiko Hara) is the heroine of the story - a young woman tormented by an awful sociopath of a mother (Eihi Shiina of Audition and Tokoyo Gore Police) and an equally deranged uncle - who wakes from a coma a year after an alien dust storm blankets Japan, turning its inhabitants into flesh-craving zombies. When she wakes, however, she is different. Someone has surgically fit her with a chainsaw samurai sword rig, the motor of which is attached to her chest. One finds out later that a secret branch of the government, unbeknownst to the Prime Minister, has altered Kika this way in an underground medical compound, all for the purpose of decreasing the number of infected citizens. And the proceeds to kick a lot of zombie ass, from enormous monster abominations to chainsaw-wielding undead to horrible patchworks of limbs and heads!

These aren't your average zombies, though. They have blood-red eyes, skin liked cracked plaster, a T-shaped (almost Y-shaped, actually) protrusion coming out of their foreheads, and sometimes some pretty disturbing body alterations.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shiina Eihi is Japan's Horror Movie Queen March 6, 2013
Format:DVD
[NOTE: IN JAPAN AND CHINA, SURNAMES ARE FIRST!] I own three films that star pretty Shiina Eihi, who is unusual in writing her name entirely in Hiragana (this one, "Audition" and "Tokyo Gore Police"), and I've seen ads for others that I may buy later. She is rather tall among Japanese ladies at 1.70 meters and stately. In this film, she and her brother are ghouls who eat her husband's legs near the opening of the film. His daughter Kika played by sexy Hara Yumiko has her heart removed to replace Eihi's that a meteor knocked out. Yumiko gets a mechanical heart and hunts zombies with a chain saw katana (42" samurai sword). She looks sexy in a tight black bodysuit and does some pole dancing. The zombies have Y-shaped antlers on their foreheads. I like some gory movies but not all certainly. My brother likes them all. He loved "Hallowe'en", but I hated it. I do like Shiina Eihi's movies, especially this one, and I want to see much more of Hara Yumiko who is on the box of this DVD.
