Gotou convinces his friend Kanzaki to help him bury the corpse of a man he claims to have killed in self-defense. Kanzaki reluctantly agrees, but when they bring the corpse out to the country they discover he's not actually dead at all.
Set in the present where a group of ruthless gangsters, an unknown woman and an escaped convict have met, unwittingly, in The Forest of Resurrection, the 444th portal to the other side. Their troubles start when those once killed and buried in the forest come back from the dead, with the assistance of the evil Sprit that has also come back, come back from ages past, to claim his prize. The final standoff between Light and Dark has never been so cunning, so brutal and so deadly. This is where old Japanese Samurai mysticism meets the new world of the gangster and the gun. Gruesome, bloody and positively bold.Written by

My pals and I love these kind of movies but really - it's all style, it's all camera moves, it's all film school hard-on CRAP and there really is nothing there. The main idea - that these woods where these gangsters are - are full of portals to the other side and the dead can immediately re-animate, etc. that's all fine, but aside from that - it is just endless fights, endless bad Tarantino/John Woo with dozens of scenes with guns pointed at people's faces, this one actor playing a gangster does some of the worst overacting I've ever seen; mugging, grimacing, flapping his hands about, oh man, I kept waiting for him to die - it's as if he watched Benicio Del Toro and Marlon Brando on a loop and just started impersonating them. But look, you can splatter all the blood you want, show holes going clean through torsos and heads, martial arts til the cows come home, but there is NONE and I mean NONE character development at all - not a shred. And the female lead is one of the wost actresses with a puffy face that would stop a clock. We hung in there til the end but I was glad to read that others had a hard time making it through. There are just so many better movies like this - Evil Dead, Dead Alive, Night of The Living Dead, Riki o, etc.
