Swords and Zombie Demons but not much excitement.
23 June 1999 | by freakusSee all my reviews

You would think with Samurai Zombies you would get some excitement but this is a bit of a snoozer. Long and complicated plot about dead warriors trying to take over the world. It ends somewhere in the middle of the story and has the feeling of a tv mini-series.
