John Cairns' Schoolgirl Apocalypse (Sr-fuku mokushiroku) - one of last year's Network of Asian Fantastic Films (NAFF) It Project selections - is set to have its world premire at this year's Puchon International Fantastic Film Festival (PiFan), which runs from July 14th to July 24th.

The cast of Schoolgirl Apocalypse apparently includes Higarino, Asami Miyakawa, Mai Tsujimoto, and Kaoru Nishida.

Here's a synopsis for Schoolgirl Apocalypse from the It Project: "A Japanese schoolgirl, Sakura, finds her average life in a small town turned inside out when all the males begin to attack and kill females. With few skills and only her kyudo bow and an English textbook to accompany her she sets out on a journey through a dark world of murder and survival. The trauma of witnessing the inexplicable mass murder of friends and then her own family begins to drive her toward madness. As her world devolves, she loses her grip on what is reality and what is fantasy. Through the madness comes something even more frightening, something not of this world. The weak women are quickly destroyed and those that survive are damaged. Sakura must make a choice if she is to survive at all and it is even doubtful that she can survive even if she chooses. With her sanity in question she wanders about narrowly escaping her own death until she finds a woman who is equipped and mentally ready to kill. But this woman is also dangerous and instead of support only offers Sakura violence and more punishment. As Sakura begins to find the way through the madness and toward survival she is confronted by the question of why this is all happening, who or what is doing this? In this place of fear and dread Sakura must decide whether to survive and find the answers or give up and die."

Those who are interested in Schoolgirl Apocalypse may wish to watch the trailer for Ryta Miyake's upcoming Vanished: Age 7 (Nanatsu made wa kami no uchi).

Enjoyed Schoolgirl Apocalypse. Expected a Sushi Typhoon-esque outing - it's more a coming of age/warriorhood tale. Lowish bodycount but... solid makeup FX. Good rural location work that well compliments Greek myth Siren-influenced cause of zombification... Lead actress Higarino solid as longbow-weilding heroine. Antagonist Mai Tsujimoto drew on "hyena" behavior/eyes. Both present, both cute

A trailer for Schoolgirl Apocalypse has been added to YouTube. Also, the official website for the movie is now online.

Here's a synopsis for Schoolgirl Apocalypse from the official website for the movie: "Japanese schoolgirl Sakura (Higarino) has her idyllic small-town life turned inside-out when the local males start savagely killing the females. Armed with only her kyudo bow for protection and an English textbook for comfort, Sakura journeys through an apocalyptic world of mayhem. As trauma from witnessing the violent deaths of friends and family drives her toward madness, Sakura takes refuge in an animated dreamworld where she meets Billy (Mackenzie), a character from her English text! Billy helps her survive murderous zombies, as well as an even more formidable foe in Aoi (Tsujimoto), as she races to find real-world Billy and answers to the questions: Why is all this happening? And who or what is behind it?"
