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

A zombie martial arts film from Japan? Sounds like a great idea. Think again. You could watch this movie in fast forward and get the same out of it, only in half the time, which in this case is a good thing.
I can't believe I read some reviews on here that say this is great cinematography. Constant movement does not equal good cinematography. This cheap Evil Dead/Dead Alive wannabe doesn't deserve the rip off camera shots it stole from them. What this movie lacks that these other movies had is character, not to mention a plot.
The setting of the movie couldn't have been more boring. This "forest of resurrection" looked like Western Pennsylvania in the autumn when all the leaves have turned an ugly brown. Add a few cars and that's it. No interiors. No lighting needed. Don't get me wrong, I'm a fan of low budget/no budget movies but this is just a downright waste of whatever money they had. They didn't even spend money on halfway decent gore effects.
The actors are horrible. I've never seen less intimidating criminals. The martial arts action was less than special to say the least. The Mighty Morphing Power Rangers have better skills.
This isn't even a "so bad, it's good" type of movie. I've seen plenty of bad movies and this one by far is the most boring. Don't watch it. Take a nap instead, you need the rest.
