Trivia

Shortly after filming the movie's notorious zombie sensei ruler juggle decapitation scene, the then top secret executive producer Hideaki Anno was found dead and hanging from a nearby storage room ceiling fan. To cover up the highly acclaimed director's shameful end, Studio Khara was formed and work began on Evangelion 1.0. Before the film's debut Khara gave word to the press stating "See, see, everything's fine. No need to worry. Anno is indeed well and working on everyone's giant robot action series. Everything is going to be okay. Don't worry. See more »

low for Japanese standards
13 September 2012 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

There are so many flicks coming from Japan lately and all do they have girls dressed as students, you know, short skirts and panties just to the knees. A lot of them do contain gore and do have nudity. But still that doesn't make a movie, you also need a good script.

The script here looked fine but it doesn't work flawless on screen. Some parts are a bit boring but the nudity makes it all up. It do contains a lot of red stuff and here and there we do have a bit of gory scene's but for Japanese standards it's low and most of the slashing or killings are done off-screen. The acting didn't provided any extra. You don't watch those movies for the acting. But being low on the gore site there are much better flicks out.

But if you are into those typical Japanese flicks with student look-a-likes then this is one to see. Of course it sometimes goes over the top with the sputtering of blood and some girls really get covered with the red stuff. The end is also over the top with a girl having extra powers coming out of her, well, you can guess it.

It's not all that bad but as I said, there's better to catch.
