*Warning* I'm just warning ahead of time that this trailer shows very graphic violence. Lots of blood, lots of gruesome stuff.


Dunno, I don't think this thing could pass with an R rating in the USA.

I run a cinema in London and nearly 2 years ago we had a japanese festival which included this film. I finally got it on DVD recently and must say that I enjoyed it. It is a bit gruesome in places but the style is very comic-like, it's based on a manga apparently but I haven't read it, has anyone else read it?

Is it any good as a manga?

Does it stay true to the original?

I haven't seen the uncut version but apparently it had a couple of minutes cut from it to get onto dvd in the UK. I got the dutch version which is very good quality with 2 discs and loads of extras.

Enjoy! ^_^
