Product Description


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.

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 !!!

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.

If you're like me the kind of person to like to watch movies with mountains of blood and lots of sexy women, as Sushi Typhoon like to produce, you just can't miss that one. If you need just one reason, it is the great return of the king of the gore, Yoshihiro Nishimura himself. I'm really a fan of Tokyo Gore Police (well, who isn't ?) and I didn't think he would ever direct a similar movie. Well, that one is so much better.

To start, he clearly has more budget than on TGP. Well, it's (very) far from a blockbuster budget and the special effects are really.........Sushi Typhoon-type ^^. But it's still better. Eihi Shiina comes back (she was the main character in TGP, for those who don't know) and, that time, she plays the villainess. She's really badass, a really crazy sadistic psychopath (her role was more... subtile^^ in Audition but here, she's clearly more than out of her mind !). The heroine is played bu Yumiko Hara, she has a very strange face but is also awesome. According to the making-of, that's her debut, she's promessing.

As usual with Nishimura, the movie is a great critic of the japanese consommation society (I think he's a fan of Paul Verhoeven because references are quite obvious), he also attacks politicians (coward and compleasant government, fascists which exhort to hate, religious sects who use the crisi to manipulate families...)Well he makes it in a funny way, it's very satirical, but the message is there. Besides, when you discover the world dominated by the zombies who created their own decadent little community, you happen to think they're not that different of the humans. A bit disturbing when you see the collective rape on a young girl just after (but after all rape is a part important in sociological story of Japan...).
