Over the years I've seen so many weird films, and at times felt I had seen the best of them. Somehow this one made it past me and I can't get enough of it. Love the ridiculous story, the over the top action scenes, the cool soundtrack, and the strange love scenes. From beginning to end I found myself entertained for many reasons. It's got that grindhouse vibe going for it, but with that certain kind of weirdness that makes it more of a masterpiece of a different sort. Loved every minute of it, and would proudly recommend it to fans of strange cinema and cult films.
So glad I stumbled upon this Gem, I loved every minute
This has got to be one of the oddest films I've experienced. In less than 90 minutes it seems to run a dozen plot lines, and somehow manages to crawl through all of them. Usually an overpacked movie seems to move too quickly, but I think I aged a couple of months while this ran. Still, Sonny Chiba is WOLGUY, and that is worth some skulls.
SONNY CHIBA IS A WEREWOLF! What else do you need? This one is where it’s at!
Watched this film during Joe-Bobs double feature and I really dug it. Check it out.
