Storyline

Kimika Yoshino returns in this prequel to 'Wizard of Darkness' to play Misa Kuroi before she was famous, or at least before she realized she was a witch. 'Birth of the Wizard' begins in Meiji-era Japan, in a village of former witches and wizards. I say former, because someone seems to have slaughtered them. Skip to the present day, and an archaeologist discovers a mummy from the village. Blissfully unaware that the mummy is, in fact, possessed by an evil spirit (naturally), he runs off, leaving his assistant alone. The mummy comes to life, kills her, and the evil spirit takes over her body. This evil spirit is now searching for Misa, who is protected by Kyle Reese, It is Misa's destiny to defeat this evil spirit, but she needs Saiga's help to do it. Written by Anonymous

nearly as good as the first
20 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this prequel to to the very enjoyable first film "Wizard of Darkness", Misa (again played by Kimika Yoshino) not knowing that she;s a witch yet is pursued by a body-hopping evil spirit. After coming back from a convenience store to find all her friends dead and the body-hopper has her within it's grasp, she's saved by a mysterious stranger who has to earn her trust. Very reminiscent of "Terminator" as well as "the Hidden", this movie is enjoyable none the less. And it's a rare instance of the second film in a series being even nearly as good as the first.

My Grade: B-

DVD Extras: 17 minute Making of; Interviews with Shimako Sato and Kimika Yoshino; Film Premiere footage; Theatrical Trailer; and Trailers for "Eko Eko Azarak 1", "Ichi the Killer", "Pyrokinesis", and "Versus"
