There isn’t a U.S. release date yet, but the Japanese action-horror flick SAMURAI ZOMBIE—written by VERSUS/THE MIDNIGHT MEAT TRAIN director Ryuhei Kitamura and helmed by popular actor/filmmaker/action choreographer Tak Sakaguchi—is heading for DVD release in the UK. The cover art for the film, a.k.a. YOROI: SAMURAI ZOMBIE, is now on the web.
Elevation Sales will release SAMURAI ZOMBIE on Brit disc July 5; details on any potential special features haven’t been revealed. Here’s the synopsis:
“A vacationing family’s drive through the woods surrounding Eight Spears Village takes an unfortunate turn when their car hits a gun-toting man standing in the middle of the road. Suddenly, a young man and woman emerge from the woods and, after shooting the accident victim, proceed to carjack the family, taking them hostage in the process. The situation immediately goes from bad to worse when the car suffers a blowout and dad is sent off in search of a spare tire or an alternative means of transport while his wife and two kids remain in the hands of the two apparent psychopaths.
“Unfortunately, any sign of deliverance for dad, his family or their captors is a long way off. Before he can find help, a mysterious encounter with a rather large blade leaves the head of the family headless, precipitating a bloody rainfall and the resurrection of a long-dead samurai warrior with a mean streak and a score to settle. Meanwhile, back at the car, a derelict old hag appears before the stranded group with a dire but frighteningly convincing warning: ‘You’re all going to die!’ Confirmation of this stark proclamation soon comes in the form of the undead warrior looking to add to his newly-begun collection of severed heads.”
