Undertaker

A special trailer for Iguchi's Zombie Ass: Toilet of the Dead has been added to YouTube. Also, the official website for Kawamatsu's Undertaker is now functional, and on it is a stills gallery for the movie.

Those who are interested in Zombie Ass: Toilet of the Dead may also wish to watch the theatrical and teaser trailers for Iguchi's upcoming Dead Sushi (Deddo sushi). According to the synopsis for the latter on Gaijinsploitation.com, it features killer sushi that "multiplies, infecting humans and turning them into zombie-like creatures."

A teaser trailer for Bishop Koyama's upcoming Rain for the Dead (Ame-agari no kimi) has been added to YouTube.

The screenplay for Rain for the Dead (Ame-agari no kimi) was written by Koyama, based on the eponymous (with regard to the Japanese title) short manga (viewer discretion is advised) by Waita Uziga (who's also the movie's executive producer). The movie stars (listed order corresponds to trailer order) Masaya Adachi, Marie Ono, and Jin Chikamatsu. It features special make-up effects by Zerai Naoi (Yûichi Naoi).

BTW, if you haven't already done so, be sure to watch the seven-second teaser trailer for Naoyuki Tomomatsu's upcoming Awa-hime onmyôji kidan. The sixth movie in the Nippon Splatterotics series of international sales agent The KlockWorx Co. Ltd. (K.K. KurokkuWâkusu), Awa-hime onmyôji kidan stars Mau Morikawa (viewer discretion is advised) and Miho Wakabayashi.

Synopsis for Kazuya Ogawa's Killer Motel (Hitokui ryokan): "There is a Japanese style inn located in an out-of-the-way area near Mount Fuji. No one knows if it's in business or not, but the inn is owned by two people: the expressionless host, and his bewitching daughter. ¶ The host lures six patrons to stay at his inn for one night. All the guests feel the inn has an odd feel to it, but none of them pays attention to it in particular. ¶ In reality, the host and his daughter have a hidden agenda. They are hunting in order to feed the host's son: a huge living zombie hidden away in a locked room, whom these cruel hunters dote on as if he were still part of the family. ¶ A twisted tale illustrating conflicts of consciousness, cold-blooded insanity, and the depths one will sink to for the love of one's family is about to begin..."

The working title of Tomomatsu's latest movie project is "Rape Zombie 2" ("Reipu zonbi 2").

BTW, it turns out that my reading of the last word in the title of Iguchi's aforementioned movie in the Kaidan Shin Mimibukuro series was correct, and that of a number of Japanese websites (e.g., the Yubari Fanta one, Japanese Wikipedia, and the since-revised Japanese Horror Movies Database) was incorrect; the word in question is "igyô", not "ikei". The official website for Kaidan Shin Mimibukuro: igyô is now online, although at present it's just a home page.

Zombie movies are my favorite some of them are zombie land, zombie stripper and dawn of dead and the best one resident evil. No one can beat the thrill and action of zombie movies, I have seen action flick but dead man movies always thrilled me. Never had a chance to watch a Japanese zombie movie but would love to watch them too. What is your favorite zombie movie?
