Based on the popular recent manga of the same name and rated as arguably the ‘greatest zombie manga ever made‘. Let’s hope that the movie leaves up to the very high expectations.
From the trailer it does look like it could be something special indeed and with ‘Gantz’ director Shinsuke Sato at least we know its gonna look amazing!
The film originally premiered at the Sitges Film Festival in October 13, 2015 and will finally get its general release in April.
The story begins with Hideo Suzuki, a 35-year-old manga artist assistant, whose life seem to be stuck around his exhausting but low-paying job, unfulfilled dreams, strange hallucinations and unsatisfying relationships. He sees himself as a supporting character in his own life, has low self-esteem, resulting in frustration.
One day, the world as Hideo knows it is shattered by presences of a disease that turns people into homicidal maniacs, whose first instinct is to attack and devour the nearest human. Armed with only his sporting shotgun, he runs for his life, meeting strangers along the way. All the while, he and his companions struggle to stay alive, while questioning their moral choices
