Extra Info

The backdrop is Japan, archipelago of pagodas, temples, ridiculously manicured Zen gardens, fragile cherry blossoms, and many more fantastic photo ops. And, oh yeah – land of ghosts and demons! Igami, our hero, has a burning desire to make it as a manga artist. Sadly, lady luck is not exactly smiling upon his artistic path. Fortunately, his true calling is exorcism. And in this, he excels. He used to work for an exorcism corporation that fell victim to a serious bout of downsizing and an exaggerated predilection for evaluation talks. On his own, however, he is doing just fine in the kicking ghost ass department. When a yakuza boss invokes his help to beat a serious curse that was put on the man, Igame gradually becomes aware that a bug master is active behind the scenes. And a bug grandmaster at that. He tracks the villain to an evangelical church that turns out to be doling out less than Christian compassion to its members. Igami is surprised to find that his girl next door, Mitsuko, has been dealt a major part in the bug master’s evil plans. He therefore decides to dig deep into his stock of tricks and spells to thwart these plans.

Director Lee Shu Mak delivers a movie that could have been a manga or a Sushi Typhoon flick. Which is unsurprising, when you know the film’s produced by the Japanese godfather of splatter himself: Yoshihiro Nishimura, responsible for such demented gorefests as TOKYO GORE POLICE, MEATBALL MACHINE KODOKU (BIFFF 2017) and HELLDRIVER (BIFFF 2011)!
