Versus ★★★½

Man.. I don't even know where to start with this one.

Versus is a Japanese movie that takes place entirely in a forest. This forest apparently houses the 444th portal to "the other side." Now, what that actually means, I'm still not sure, but here it manifests in a whole lot of reanimated corpses just popping up out of the ground. We have a group of criminals (some of whom might actually be reincarnated samurai and/or wizards), who have to fight the undead menace to stay alive.

And boy, do they fight!

This whole movie is just one kinetic fight sequence after another. It's ultra violent and has tons of splatterific gore.

It's bonkers!

While it doesn't have a whole lot of depth and could have easily trimmed thirty minutes of its runtime, it's still an exhilarating watch that lovers of over the top Japanese movies will surely appreciate.

Lou (rhymes with wow!) liked these reviews
