Could this be the next splatter masterpiece to find its way out of Japan? Maybe we won’t go that far, but Samurai Zombie certainly looks like it’s got a hell of a lot going for it, not the least of which being that is was directed by Versus star and all around badass Tak Sakaguchi.
The film follows a family on vacation who are threatened by a man with a gun. As the family is being terrorized, a couple shows up out of nowhere, kills the man, then disappears again. Soon after an old woman shows up to warn them of impending death, and before they know it, they’re hip-deep in samurai zombies who are more apt to cut you in half than bite.
Twitch Film now has the film’s trailer ready for your consumption. If its low-budget look bugs you, just know that with Tak at the helm there won’t be any shortage of ass kicking, bloody spraying or comedy. Looks like a helluva lot of fun to me!
