Alternate title is The Japanese Evil Dead. Really thought this film was much older than 2014 before I hit up IMDb. Has a nice SOV atmosphere and looks promising to me.

It definitely looks like much older, I would have imagined it was made in 2014. Looks cool btw.

There is a good reason for the AKA The Japanese Evil Dead!

Apart from at one instance our hero stating "Groovy!" :blink:

Apart from the small snippets of blatant Evil Dead Love Time Japanese Style this was quite enjoyable....actually some of their interpretations of what should be said was kinda alright.

We get stop motion, I swear I saw like cardboard cut outs used as aspects of the effects and Japanese-isms aplenty. With the early 70s Japanese look it all fitted in quite well. Demon woman didn't look perfect at all BUT WAS perfect for this!

Enjoyed and feel worthy enough for anyone who loves the Underground and low budget filmmaking should check out along with obviously Evil Dead fans.
