In a post apocalyptic future, the D3 corporation had performed devilish experiments to raise the dead. These undead creatures started preying on living humans and the humanity is on the brink of extinction. Aya, (upcoming sex siren Eri Otoguro, U.S. remake "Shutter) is the heiress of the ancient Imichi clan of assassins. Aya cuts her way through zombies created by mad scientist Sugita, on the path to vengeance in search of her sister Saki (Chise Nakamura, Cursed Songs 2) to avenge the death of their father at the hands of her own sister. Joined by longtime companion, Katsuji and a leather-clad, shotgun-toting woman named Reiko (Minami Hashimoto), Aya is determined to come to a resolution on the conflict between her and her sister Saki. Aya is an amazing swordswoman, Saki is her equal with a Katana sword --what would be the outcome?
The film isn't to be taken seriously at first glance. I haven't read the Japanese comic nor have I finished the game; but it is so obvious that this film has been inspired by a comic and the effects are very reminiscent of the video game. The Swordplay is a blend of "Dynasty Warriors", the effects can be compared to "Fist of the NorthStar" and even "DragonBall Z".Read more ›
As for the storyline, the flow of the movie, the fight sequences, the dialogue and the acting, they are average. It is the zombies that save this movie for me. Their make-up is superb, and though they are at times your standard slow, lurching, twitching zombies, they can be fast and they can fight. There is also none of the over-the-top cherry syrup blood spray that you get with Tokyo Gore Police, just a brief crimson splash which I feel fits better with zombies. Though personally I would have preferred the blood to be darker in color. I especially liked the homage to Silent Hill, intentional or not, with the nurse zombie in the hospital. Other effects in the movie are also enjoyable: the blood spatter on the TV screen, the body parts being flung out of the fray, and the video game effects like the special attacks and the character boosts. Combined with the 3 hot ladies in this movie, and I actually give this movie 3 1/2 stars.Read more ›
There was only so much killing I could take before I needed some plot. Background was provided by a fireside chat, but that grew boring as did the lack of linear plot indicating the script couldn't grow beyond that of an action game.
Guide: Sex, Nudity. Blood splatter on the lens. 3 1/2 STARS

What were they thinking when they made this film?
Two words: God awful.
I know that zombie movies are supposed to be hack jobs, with bad dialogue, bad special effects and illogical survival decisions but this particular movie it only fairly good at it. Read morePublished on January 29, 2014 by Fizzle
