About this deal

Unleashed from a mysterious Tokyo cellar and available for the first time in the UK, the Bloody Muscle Body Builder invites fans of bizarro lo-fi cinema on a far out journey . Die Handlung orientiert sich hier am großen Vorbild "Tanz der Teufel" und lässt auch etwas vom Haunted-House-Thema aus "Hausu" mit einfließen.

Despite lacking a cool older relative or friend to show me the ropes, my early exposure to the horror genre was fairly conventional. Written and directed by Stephen Cognetti, this faux-documentary style horror movie brings tons of thrills and chills. Bizarre little horror film that, in spite of its incredibly low budget, manages to provide some genuinely artistic moments of horror among the spurting arteries and decapitation. Well executed scares, clever twists, and earnest performances by Brian Cox and Emile Hirsch give this supernatural haunter serious heft.

Although that is of course the whole appeal of this film, which plays out its absurd plotting and over-the-top gestures with a sincerity that only adds to the sense of old-school authenticity. Exklusiv nur bei Cover A (das Artwork stammt übrigens von Graham Humphreys) ist eine handsignierte Autogrammkarte des Regisseurs Shinichi Fukazawa enthalten. What it does feel like though is Shinichi Fukazawa’s love letter to what Evil Dead was – and the impact it made in Japan.

Tribute” is a generous term; Bloody Muscle Body Builder in Hell apes so much from Evil Dead that it’s virtually an unauthorized remake. The references to the former 80s video nasty can’t be ignored though this film can’t really compete with the original Sam Raimi classic. Bloody Muscle Body Builder in Hell is one that fans of SOV and WTF films as well as Deadites should enjoy. Her death triggers a series of supernatural occurrences suggesting that perhaps mom made a deal with the devil; and he’s come to collect.They then spend a stupid gory, slapsticky night in the house where a claymation demon shows and up everyone but not ash gets possessed. Bloody Muscle Body Builder in Hell is presented in Japanese with subtitles, but they seem to be missing in a couple of scenes, although its easy enough to figure out what’s going on without them. K. detention facility, and have been finally granted an opportunity for housing in their new country.

What I find interesting about Bloody Muscle Body Builder in Hell is that it was originally filmed in the nineties, but took years to actually be completed, and released. Bloody Muscle Body Builder in Hell" ist ein kleiner Splatterfilm aus Japan, der eine leider etwas kurze Laufzeit von 63 Minuten aufweist. When a bodybuilder, his ex-girlfriend and a professional psychic enter a haunted house, they soon find themselves trapped within it.

Running an economical 63 minutes, the first two thirds of Bloody Muscle Body Builder in Hell adopt the more straightforward horror tone of The Evil Dead, while the finale goes full-bore into Evil Dead 2‘s splatstick territory — including rudimentary optical effects, lo-fi stop-motion animation, and a fight with disembodied appendages that gives credence to the otherwise forgotten “Body Builder” part of the title. So here we have “the Japanese Evil Dead”, a solid movie for the genre, it looks too dumb and also too brilliant at the same time. That proves especially true in the current digital age, where there’s an overwhelming sea of options spread across multiple streaming services and platforms that can make finding the scariest offerings tricky.

Tun, who’d been drinking, convinces Jane to flee, leaving the woman alone in the middle of the road. Once they’re inside, the angry presence of a young woman won’t let them leave, and it’s not long before she starts possessing them.As we head into the weekend, here’s a roundup of ten of horror’s most intense, bone-chilling movies. But inside the house a dark secret lingers and they find themselves trapped and tormented by a relentless ghost with a 30 year grudge . There is a feeling that the film is trying to be sillier than it manages to be, especially with the overuse of blood, which looks more like tomato purée than anything that could come out of a human being. Mixed in there are also plenty of allusions to other films: there is the rotten corpse using the flesh and blood of the living to reconstitute itself from Hellraiser; the animated severed hand from Evil Dead II; the spider creature formed of a disembodied head from The Thing; and even the shirt burst and ripped by flexing muscles from the Incredible Hulk.
