Minimal gore, too much dialog, absolutely does not belong on Shudder. Not sure how they managed to score this perfectly fine samurai film and not an actual modern horror masterpiece like Meatball Machine.

I loved it since I saw it in a Santa Monica theatre opening weekend after work. Still have my post card promos and mini-poster to boot, the crowd was into it and even after many viewings, it holds up as an incredible piece of work! Few survived and it all was a bloody, violent purpose driven mission, five skulls indeed!
