Flesh-eating zombies, exploding heads, UFOs, transgendered love, and rock & roll are all on display in this uber-"B"-flick starring Japanese punk band Guitar Wolf. Helmed by noted video director Takeuchi Tetsuro -- known as "MTV Man" in Japan -- the film duly opens during a Guitar Wolf concert with leather-clad rocker Ace (Endo Masashi) watching agog in the audience. During a bloody confrontation between Guitar Wolf and his sleazy, hot pants-wearing manager the Captain (Makoto Inamiya), Ace tries to defend his idols, only to get socked in the mouth for his effort. Guitar Wolf makes Ace his blood brother, gives him a whistle to sound during times of trouble, then races off to their next gig. Following Guitar Wolf on his motorcycle, Ace happens upon a comely waif named Tabio (Shitichai Kwancharu) during a gas station robbery. Soon, the threat of a knife-welding lunatic seems paltry compared to the sudden appearance of a legion of zombies hungry for living flesh. In the heat of a pitched battle between the young couple and the horde of the undead, true love blooms. Then, when things start getting really weird, Guitar Wolf comes to the rescue with guns and guitars a-blazin'. This film was screened during the Midnight Madness program at the 2000 Toronto Film Festival. ~ Jonathan Crow, All Movie Guide

with a great Rock N Roll soundtrack. If you like rock in the style of the Ramones, you'll like this. If you want PLENTY of zombies, you'll like this. One thing is guaranteed, you'll never see another movie like this! Great fun!

Quite Possibly the Most Absurdly Awesome Zombie Flick Ever by MWright November 17, 2004 - 8:00 PM PST

Let me first tell you about how awesome Guitar Wolf is. When they were signed to a large label in the US they were kicked out of the state of the art (SONY I think) recording studio because they turned the levels up waaaaay too far. They are the most obnoxious band ever, but they do one thing better than most bands...and that's ROCK! So take Guitar Wolf and make them the center piece of a (sort of) low budget zombie movie and you have an INSTANT fast paced, hard to follow at times, zombie blasting, beer chugging, fire spewing, cult classic. The bonus drinking game is an amazing added feature. I enjoyed this movie with a few friends and drank as indicated by the crude bitmapped beer mug icon that would appear in the corner of the screen...I think it made our experience a bit more hilarious. I was a little aprehensive as to what this movie would be like and hyped it up a little bit only on the fact that Guitar Wolf is in it, but it totally delivered the rock 'n roll awesomeness that only Guitar Wolf can seem to achieve. If you're not intimidated by drinking an undetermined amout of beer during 98 minutes of anticipation and laughter then rent this movie. Otherwise go back to knitting your scarf and watch Bambi for the 3rd time today.
