Water goblins attack in the Japanese monster mash DEATH KAPPA, which now has a trailer for your viewing pleasure.
Media Blasters is releasing the film on DVD and Blu-ray July 27. YouTube has the trailer, which you can click on and watch below.
The kappa, in Japanese folklore, are water goblins that are closely associated with a certain town in the country. Unfortunately, the area is also home to a militant splinter group of researchers dedicated to developing amphibious super soldiers based on the kappa of legends. When their experiments result in murders by some escapees, the appearance of an actual kappa and the triggering of an atomic bomb, the consequences are of epic proportions. A monster arrives in the midst of the nuclear fallout, and Japan's defenses are helpless against it. Mankind's only savior is an irradiated water goblin that is on the rampage with death in its eyes.
Veteran monstermaker/FX artist Tomoo Haraguchi, who also helmed SAKUYA: SLAYER OF DEMONS and KIBAKICHI, directed the movie.
