Wickedly fun action-horror
24 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is awesome. yes the special fx are cheap and the monsters horrid but the movie has a good sense of fun and actually a great premise. Kibakichi is a lone samurai who is also a werewolf and roams the countryside. He stops in a small town ruled by Yokai (monsters). The leader has made a pact with the yakuza with promises of a new beginning for the yokai. As Kibakichi unearths a deadly plot to rid the Yokai, his inner beast is unleashed and the finale is one bloody showdown. With guns, swords, blood and gore, this movie delivers. Yes it's slow but the performances are awesome and at 95 minutes moves quickly. I got this for 5 bucks and it's sequel.

Enjoy the movie for what it is a fun action-horror film before Hollywood remakes it soon.
