Review by: Bob Doto

Rating: 6.5 out of 10

By most people’s standards Tomoo Haraguchi’s Death Kappa is a stupid film. Silly sound effects, ridiculous dancing “monsters” (humans in rubber suits grooving to children’s pop music), and a pretty absurd plot all make for the worst movie of all time. However, Death Kappa is also pretty funny, meanders like any off-the-wall Japanese film should, and contains enough self-awareness to keep the more well-versed kaiju audience in attention. So, yes, while Death Kappa is goofy beyond the most misplaced of fart jokes, it’s also satire and thus elbows its way into a roomier review.

The story goes like this: A young girl named Kanako (Misato Hirata) returns to her village after a failed attempt at being a pop sensation in Tokyo to witness her grandmother being run over »
