'Tokyo Zombie' Invades Anchor Bay   

February 20, 2009 In the tradition of "Shaun of the Dead," the horror comedy "Tokyo Zombie" is set hit DVD in the U.S. April 7, 2009, courtesy of Anchor Bay Entertainment.

The film was written and directed by Sakichi Sato, who wrote Takashi Miike’s controversial, award-winning Ichi the Killer, and many observers have compared this film to Miike’s ground-breaking work in the horror genre.

Tadanobu Asano (the Academy-Award nominated Mongol) and Show Aikawa (Zebraman, Specter, winner of the Japanese Professional Film Award) portray a pair of full-time slackers and wannabe jujitsu champions who bring the murdered body of their sleazy boss to Tokyo’s infamous toxic waste dump known as “Black Fuji.”

But when an army of the undead rises from the foul, festering trash heap, our “heroes” must battle a non-stop barrage of hasty decapitations, perverted teachers, tasty snack foods (!), stormy romance and zombie professional wrestling. Yes, the fate of humanity hinges on these two dimwit misfits – one dumber than the other.

The film is based on the popular manga comic by Yusaku Hanakuma.
