Description

Trapped inside a haunted house, a body builder must survive a blood soaked night of insanity to save himself and his friends from a demonic ghost that is hell-bent on revenge. It was self-released with a run of 100 burned DVDs in 2012 followed by official Japanese distribution in 2014. Bloody Muscle Body Builder in Hell markets itself as "The Japanese Evil Dead," and the influence couldn't be more obvious. They invade like a viral infection via technology, plunging the globe into hopeless despair and death. But inside the house a dark secret lingers and they find themselves trapped and tormented by a relentless ghost with a 30 year grudge.

It’s currently available from Visual Vengeance and you can check their Facebook page for more information. What it does feel like though is Shinichi Fukazawa’s love letter to what Evil Dead was – and the impact it made in Japan. So here we have “the Japanese Evil Dead”, a solid movie for the genre, it looks too dumb and also too brilliant at the same time. That is a lot for a single film to accommodate, especially in 61 minutes, but the small house bequeathed to Naoto comes with many rooms. There’s the La Casa series in Italy, wherein unrelated movies (including House II and House III, but not the original House!It was released independently in Japan in 2012, and then a slightly altered version (indeed, the ‘complete edition’ found on this DVD release) enjoyed a brief theatrical release in 2014, followed by the official Japanese DVD. Now she is determined to find new flesh and build her own bloody muscle body, so that she can execute a vengeful grudge against those that she has locked in the house with her. The situation is set up to give a ghost, and to get the cannon-fodder heroes into the house, and then let the death and the destruction commence.

That’s probably why Wild Eye chose it as the first release from Visual Vengeance, an imprint devoted to obscure SOV films. Husband-and-wife Sudanese refugees Bol (Sope Dirisu) and Rial (Wunmi Mosaku) have been through more than most endure in a lifetime.Those who are into a more polished and professional standard of horror movie will do best to avoid this one. Bizarre little horror film that, in spite of its incredibly low budget, manages to provide some genuinely artistic moments of horror among the spurting arteries and decapitation. André Øvredal goes full throttle for the scares in this quiet little chiller that sees a father and son coroner team stumped over the bizarre mysteries contained within the body of an unidentified young woman. There are some genuine laughs to be had, such as Naoto’s realization “The shotgun isn’t my weapon, my muscles are!

you've likely read the reviews on various sites, now you can own a piece of psychotronic film history. It’s not quite a shot-for-shot recreation, but several major beats are replicated (the lead character even gets to say “Groovy! Bloody Muscle Body Builder in Hell is one that fans of SOV and WTF films as well as Deadites should enjoy. The reason I wanted to make this movie was because I wanted to be like Bruce Cambpell’s Ash from The Evil Dead, and I wanted to kick zombies around like him.Bloody Muscle Body Builder in Hell’s backstory involves the spirit of a woman killed in the house by Naoto’s father and waiting all these years for revenge, but it’s just an excuse to have characters become possessed and stage some outrageous gore gags. Although no one does it quite like Raimi, Fukazawa admirably attempts to emulate his kinetic ingenuity. Apart from a nice slipcase and artwork, the highlight for many people will be the humorous commentary track by Adam Green and Joe Lynch. Combining cutting-edge design, illustration and journalism, we’ve been described as being “at the vanguard of the independent publishing movement.
