newcomers to the genre will be looking elsewhere
10 August 2010 | by (www.subtitledonline.com) – See all my reviews

George Santayana, the Spanish-American philosopher, once famously said that those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. Tak Sakaguchi, martial artist, stuntman, actor and now director, has a high standing for taking every opportunity as it comes. Samurai Zombie, his second film as director, shares the same aphorism as Santayana's, so why, considering his rapid rise to success, did he deliberately choose an angry reanimated corpse with military nobility as his next step? Sadly less than engaging after the opening gambit, Samurai Zombie is likely to be appreciated the most by seasoned splatter-horror buffs, whilst newcomers to the genre will be looking elsewhere for their gratuitous entertainment, wondering what all the fuss is about.
