Death Kappa Crashes onto DVD and Blu-ray in July!

HELL YES! Now this is what we’re talking about, damnit! Giant monsters! Destruction! Random acts of violence committed by men in wacky rubber suits! Life is good!

The fine folks over at Media Blasters released the ultra rare VHS trailer for Death Kappa, a film by celebrated make-up, creature, and effects master Tomoo Haraguchi, which will be hitting American shores on DVD and Blu-Ray July 27th from Tokyo Shock. Check out the trailer below, and just try and contain yourself!

Synopsis
The kappa, in Japanese folklore, are water goblins that are closely associated with a certain town in the country. Unfortunately, the area is also home to a militant splinter group of researchers dedicated to developing amphibious super soldiers based on the kappa of legends. When their experiments result in murders by some escapees, the appearance of an actual kappa, and the triggering of an atomic bomb, the consequences are of epic proportions. A monster arrives in the midst of the nuclear fallout, and Japan’s defenses are helpless against it. Mankind’s only savior is an irradiated water goblin that is on the rampage with death in its eyes.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    This one looks great!

    It will tide me over as I wait for Godzilla to fuck up Tokyo in 3D.

  • Verdugo

    This looks simply magnificent. Is this gonna be a short film like Negadon and Gehara, or is it going to be longer?

  • Foywonder

    Just announced today? I already did this story two months ago. Only thing new is the trailer. I just hope we haven’ seen all the best parts in the trailer.

            I’ve changed my mind. For the next DFF Creepy and I are just going to sip tea and speak in a cordial manner like too refined gentlemen about the weather outside just to spite you.

          • Terminal

            Oh good you saved me one tedious hour. Bless you.

            Because heavens forbid we do something you won’t be critical of. You know its what you live for.

            Dude, I’m like the Joker and you guys are Robin (not Batman, he’s too cool), I need you guys. And you need me.

            Well I guess that means I just HAVE to join in then. I’ll describe everything as “bloody” too, promise!

            “It was bloody brilliant.”

            “It was bloody shit.”

            et al.

            And I WILL be drinking tea. With booze in it.

          • Terminal

            I drink Ginger Ale… with booze in it.
