Set in the present where a group of ruthless gangsters, an unknown woman and an escaped convict have met, unwittingly, in The Forest of Resurrection, the 444th portal to the other side. Their troubles start when those once killed and buried in the forest come back from the dead, with the assistance of the evil Sprit that has also come back, come back from ages past, to claim his prize. The final standoff between Light and Dark has never been so cunning, so brutal and so deadly. This is where old Japanese Samurai mysticism meets the new world of the gangster and the gun. Gruesome, bloody and positively bold. Written by
Tak Sakaguchi was hired for the lead after director Kitamura saw a gag video that featured Sakaguchi. Kitamura's main reason for hiring Sakaguchi was because he had "a beautiful smile", however, Sakaguchi claims he met Kitamura during a street fight which Sakaguchi was involved in. Kitamura offered him a role in his film after asking him if he'd rather fight in the streets or fight in his films. Kitamura later vouched as well that he met Sakaguchi during a street fight.

One of the detectives says (in the subtitled version) that he was trained at FBI HQ at Langley. Langley is the headquarters of the CIA, not the FBI. This fits the character, though, who seems to lie about his abilities throughout the movie. See more »
This movie, while made to be an action type with some subtle humor, grades pretty low to folks looking for an action movie to snuggle up with and watch alone. This movie is much, much more fun to watch with others, preferably with a sense of humor.
If you're not a fan of action, and are looking for anything remotely deep and meaningful, look someplace else.
The movie is shot entirely in a forest setting, with the times shifting from morning to twilight frequently.
The action is very well put together despite being on an obvious low budget. I recommend this movie to anyone with a few hours to kill with a few friends.
