Did You Know?


In the confines of the story, whatever triggered the transformation of men into "rape zombies", is most likely airborne. It initiates once a man is aroused and he turns without having to die first. The only men who are immune to the change are Otaku, (Anime lovers) as the story explains that their love for anime has robbed them of their lustful desires. See more »

Much more entertaining than expected

Following a nuclear attack in Tokyo, a nurse and several other women find themselves as well as any woman in the city under attack by zombified men looking to rape any woman around them and must find a way of stopping their violent outbursts to get away alive.

This one wasn't that bad but did have its flaws. When it tried to, there was some rather fine work here where it manages to showcase the rather intense and explicit work involved in a rather ordinary manner. The cause of the outbreak and how it affects the population makes for a rather creepy premise and there's some rather chilling work here showcasing the rather ugly truth for all involved here, from the opening beatdown and her eventual revenge to the different flashbacks showing each of the girls getting their own run-ins with the crazed hordes from the hospital room massacre to the aborted job interview where her attacker turns on her and the situation with the housewife being used by her husband and her friends which are all rather dark action scenes against the theme of seeing the women being raped and having the others around them either save them or let it happen. That these generate into battles with zombies gives this the kind of graphic bloodletting usually required here with the method utilized for getting rid of the men, and the regular means of dispatch give this even more rather brutal scenes with the evisceration and bloodshed coming from some rather fun encounters here. Once it comes to showing the women fighting back and taking up arms supported by the military forces left, there's a nice amount of action to be had here as this one goes for the fun of the gunfighting and hand-to-hand tactics to stave off the swarms around them, letting the furious action take over again and brings about some great times here. Given that these result in some really brutal and bloody sequences with all the usual craziness expected here, this goes a long way to redeeming this one. While these did work, it does have some issues. The film's biggest problem is the fact that there's such a hard subject matter to take into account here as the film attempts to support the theory that women are there simply to have men have sex with them as the chemical only affects men. Turning them into sex-crazed maniacs rather than flesh-eating hordes who will attack any and all women as often as they want wherever they want sends quite a strong message and the continuous sequences showing multiple men abusing and raping women in incredibly explicit and sexual means doesn't come off in the best light. That often blurs the line between exploitation and outright misogyny at times, especially within the rape at the TV station which is left on showing the girls getting raped in full-on close-up simply for the sake of the nudity and it leaves a much more brutal and ugly tone in this one than there really should be. As well, once it leaves the exploitative subject matter there's a big flaw in how long that goes in between attacks as the mid-section of the film doesn't feature anything as the girls are stuck in their hideout watching the events of the world play out around them doesn't generate any kind of really interesting action to play out. It's somewhat dull in these sections, and that results in some serious pacing issues. With some really dodgy and lame CGI in places, these here really take this one down.

Rated Unrated/NC-17: Continuous Explicit Rape, Extreme Graphic Violence, Continuous Full Nudity and Graphic Language.
