    Bloody Muscle Body Builder in Hell


    A fun ride, also known as The Japanese Evil Dead for reasons that become increasingly obvious as you watch throughout it relatively short hour runtime.

I appreciated seeing the general “cabin in the woods” premise twisted through the lens of another different culture.

    Pretty good for a nearly forgotten slasher film. The cast is energetic and fun enough to watch, and the movie really only gets dull towards the end.

    Absolutely amazing low budget amateur production. The 30 minute long film is a fun parody of the slasher movie genre, with some really clever songs throughout. There is little to no suspense or horror throughout the movie, and the special effects are as basic as they can get. The acting is bad in all the right, campy ways, and the mediocre-to-poor singing voices of the entire cast help strike the perfect tone. It's a shame that this movie is so hard to find, as it would be a cult classic if more b-movie fans were able to see it!
