Product Description

Set in 15th Century Sweden, Hope, the beautiful daughter of Matthias-believed to be a skilled mercenary, but who in actuality is Lucifer, the Lord of Lies-is accused of being the devil's consort following a hellish incident witnessed by local villagers. Ultimately, Hope is sentenced by the town priest to be burned at the stake. Writhing in pain and unable to think clearly, she accepts Lucifer's offer of life in Hell-presented by the malevolent Pagan-over a hideously painful death. Lucifer's grand plan to corrupt a soul of pure innocence meets unanticipated resistance, as Hope rejects Lucifer's scheme and eventually, transformed into the powerful warrior LADY DEATH, challenges the Lord of Lies for control of Hell itself. A powerful story of innocence lost, savage betrayal and glorious rebirth.


Based on the comic book series by Brian Pulido, Lady Death exemplifies the ongoing cross-pollination between anime and the American film industry. Produced by Houston-based ADV Films, Lady Death was animated overseas in a style that suggests a cross between Wicked City and a Boris Vallejo illustration. Hope, an innocent girl in medieval Sweden, discovers her father is Lucifer in disguise. She prays to him while being burned at the stake, then leads a revolt against him in the afterlife. Aided by Cremator, the former chief armorer of Hell, Hope takes the name Lady Death and crams her pneumatic figure into a miniscule bikini and thigh-high boots. The plot is a hopeless muddle and the dialogue unintentionally hilarious: "In all my days in Hell... I have never met a soul like you." A guilty pleasure for hormonal adolescent males, Lady Death will quickly alienate other viewers. (Rated age 17 and older: graphic violence, violence against women, grotesque imagery) --Charles Solomon

Well, I can honestly say that this is the first time that I experienced a film that had literally no meat or potatoes in it. The entire film felt like it was just the salad with no main course. The story line was fallible and laughable, the characters were one-dimensional, the realism was out the window, and the animation was done by four-year olds. Does that cover it? I have never been more embarrassed for a concept in my entire life. I have never read the comics or seen the other programs with this character, but from the looks of the other reviews I am not off base with my observation.

To begin, the story moved too quickly. For someone new to this character and situations, I needed more built into creating the reasons instead of finding the solution. I have seen other Anime (if you could call this one an Anime) that do great things with their characters because they take the time to develop them. There was nothing set aside for Lady Death. In a few short scenes, we see her train with Cremator and instantly become this aggressive she-beast of Hell. This was hard for me to swallow, considering moments before she was introduced as this weak and feeble woman controlled by her father. Suddenly, she is immersed with hatred and can do battle with an existence that has been around for millions of years. This was absurd. The presentation of Lady Death was poor, to say the least. I felt as if she was nothing more than an animated character instead of a desperate woman with revenge on the mind. For me, it just didn't work. She was nothing more than eye-candy for prepubescent boys wanting to ogle the mass quantities of skin that she suddenly grew on her chest when training with Cremator. Oh, I felt sick just watching her. The same goes for the character of Cremator.

Lady Death is a great movie!I am one of the biggest Lady Death fans with having comics,litho's,statues,and a full picture tattoo of her from head to heel on my back and even with all the so-called negative reviews I still love this movie.The anime style actually works really well for this picture.Hope is wrongly accussed by the town of devil worship after her father escapes into hell leaving her behind.She is then burned at the stake only to be saved by a prayer her father taught her.Hope realizes her father is Satan after he saves her and Hope is delivered to hell.Satan has his own evil plan in the works the whole time.Hope receives help from an unlikely ally and is transformed into Lady Death during her training.Lady Death must now stop Satan in a battle for hell.The movie does stay true to the comic and the origins of Lady Death for one hell of a thrill ride from start to finish.This is an awesome movie that any true Lady Death fan will love.If you want to nitpick about every detail then you won't enjoy it,but if you take Lady Death for what she is,a sexy as hell, ass-kickin,demon slaying vixen that will set your heart racing,then you will appreciate this picture.There is plenty of blood,and gore with sweet battle scenes that are very cool with the anime style.Bottom line take the good with the bad and enjoy Lady Death kicking some ass!!! Lady Death Rocks!!!

Born in 15th century Sweden, Hope has dreams of spending her life with the gentle and kind Niccolo. But her world comes crashing down with she finds that her father. Matthias, is actually Lucifer and he has imprisoned Niccolo’s soul. Worse, the local priest exposes Matthias/Lucifer, who escapes, leaving Hope to be burned at the stake. The only way that she can be reunited with Niccolo is to pray Lucifer’s prayer and follow him to Hell. But, Lucifer is the father of lies, and he has misled his daughter again. Now, Hope has changed her name to Lady Death, and she is determined to bring her father down, no matter what the cost.

OK, I have to admit that I am not familiar with the Lady Death comics, so I cannot really compare the two. That said, I did find this to be a fun and entertaining movie. The setting was quite interesting, and the denizens of Hell are quite an entertaining lot. Admittedly, the story did have a rushed feel to it – perhaps it was just too much of a story to tell in an hour and a quarter.

Nonetheless, I did enjoy this movie, and I don’t hesitate to recommend it. It’s a lot of fun, just don’t expect too much.
