Storyline

The eruption of Mt. Fuji in 1707 released hordes of demons from deep inside the earth. Sakuya, the young daughter of a samurai killed fighting these demons, accepts a mission to travel to Mt. Fuji and defeat the evil spirits. Accompanying her on her journey are two veteran warriors who served her father, and Taro, a young kappa, or river spirit, whom she has adopted as her little brother. Along the way, the two warriors have doubts about Taro's loyalties, and the young kappa himself must decide if he will stand with his own species or with the humans who have cared for him.

Great effects, dull in parts.
19 November 2001 | by See all my reviews

Live action manga featuring a young girl and her companions who travel to Mount Fuji to battle evil. Some great effects, but the budget was obviously blown on them and the result is long, dull periods between fights, where the paper-thin characters have trouble holding your attention. Lots of people in rubber monster suits, and the dance of the good demons at the end is a bit of a head-masher. Reasonable amounts of fun for fans of Japanese monster movies.
