Burns up the SFXs of Hollywood films...
21 February 2002 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Pyrokenesis is truly an entertaining film, although it's not as fun as the Heisei Gamera films by the same director, it sure was interesting. The characters are complex, unlike the few plain characters that are seen in Hollywood films, each character has emotions and background that are slowly shown throughout the film and not all shown at the same time. The highlight of this film other then the engaging story is the SFX, the fire effects are some of the most beautiful scenes seen in a film, especially when the female lead, Junko, is surrounded by burning flames as she tries to save her love. Sure, this film may be slow, but it's actually interesting to watch, a true Japanese horror film indeed.
