Synopsis:
A mysterious face-off in a wooded clearing between two escaped convicts and a carload of sharply dressed yakuza holding a beautiful woman captive ends in hails of bullets and showers of blood. The location for this violent encounter is the mythic Forest of Resurrection, the site of the 444th portal of the 666 hidden gates that link this earthly domain to the netherworld - and it didn't get this name for nothing.
As one of the surviving prisoners escapes with the girl into the darkness of the forest, disgruntled gangsters soon become the least of their worries as an earlier battle between a lone warrior against hordes of zombie samurai is carried over from a millennium ago into the present day...

play it loud - Versus review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
31/01/2007

Fun, gory but not overstylised fight movie. Minimal dialogue but lots of claustrophobic action set in a forest. Cliches abound with nods to all previous zombie movies and a great punchy soundtrack if you're into Japanese techno
