Oh dear, we may have found a Japanese horror movie that outcrasses Big Tit Zombie. This here is Red Sword, a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood with werewolves, dime-store special effects, and blatantly hornball marketing that would give the late, great Doris Wishman a run for her money. Here's the plot synopsis, if such contrivances are important to you:
Long, long ago, there was a wolf-man tribe who had no women. All through history these desperate wolf men have attacked and raped female humans as a way to continue their species. But the wolf men have a terrible legend where every hundred years, on the night of a red moon, a little girl is born and she is destined to destroy the wolf-man tribe. The lecherous wolf men are so afraid of females that they have developed a code which requires they kill baby girls soon after they are born. But only the lovely Beniko Akatsuki survives this terrible fate.
These days, Beniko fights endless battles against the wolf men. Poor Beniko's mother was ruthlessly raped by a wolf man and gave birth to Beniko. To save her baby girl, Beniko's mother had to sacrifice her own life. Now, Beniko wears a memento of her beloved mother, a red riding hood, and she has dedicated her life to killing all the wolf men. One day, Beniko senses that the evil wolf men are sneaking into a high school. The clever Beniko pretends she is a school girl and starts attending school, only to find vicious, horny pack of female-deprived wolf men. Beniko protects her fellow school girls as she fights them off with her sword and her red riding hood.
Will the brave, sexy Beniko Red Riding Hood be able to finally kill the vicious pack of sex-starved wolf-men?
If you haven't had your fill of sleazy J-Horror, here's the trailer for another upcoming Mensa meeting titled Zombie Ass. Horror effects whiz Yoshiro Nishimura (who we interviewed this summer) and director Noboru Iguchi (who helmed RoboGeisha) tell a tale of zombifying parasites that climb up people's anuses. Iguchi once boasted, "It's the biggest collection of farting beautiful girls in any film to date."
