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!
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.
