Trapped inside an old haunted property, a body builder finds himself tormented by a relentless ghost with a 30 year grudge in Shinichi Fukazawa’s tongue-in-cheek splatter comedy; Bloody Muscle Body Builder in Hell. With the assistance of Terracotta Distribution, Attack from Planet B has had the opportunity to interview Shinichi Fukazawa to discuss his first feature-length film.
The Necronomicon was never meant for the world of the living, but with it Ash unwittingly summoned Kandarian demons in Sam Raimi’s The Evil Dead. Now Fright-Rags resurrects the ancient ‘Book of the Dead’ with The Evil Dead & Necronomicon Collection.
“I fear that the only way to stop those possessed by the spirits of the book is through the act of…bodily dismemberment.”
Directed by Shinichi Fukazawa, Bloody Muscle Body Builder in Hell is a Japanese splatter film that pays tribute to the enduring spirit of director Sam Raimi’s The Evil Dead (1981) and Evil Dead II (1987).
Known as the ‘Japanese Evil Dead’ to those few that have actually managed to get their hands on this no-budget horror flick outside of Japan, Bloody Muscle Body Builder in Hell meshes the SFX style of Hausu (1977) with the comedy and splatter associated with The Evil Dead series.
In 1981, Sam Raimi’s The Evil Dead, the ultimate experience in grueling horror, was released onto the unsuspecting public. It became a cult classic, spawned two sequels; Evil Dead II (1987) and Army of Darkness (1992), and created a cult icon with the character of Ash, played by the charismatic Bruce Campbell. It was inevitable that this movie was going to be remade…
Produced by Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell and Robert Tapert, directed by Fede Alvarez and released in 2013.
“The most terrifying film you will ever experience.”
Coded by Richard Leinfellner for Palace Software and released on the Commodore 64 in 1984, The Evil Dead is an adventure game based on Sam Raimi’s 1981 horror film of the same name.
When a group of five Michigan State students decide to spend the weekend at an isolated cabin, hidden deep within the woods of the Tennessee mountains, they discover ‘Morturom Demonto’ an ancient Sumerian text, otherwise known as ‘The Book of the Dead’.
“A fast-moving graphic game of skill and strategy…The most exciting computer game!”
In 1981, Sam Raimi’s ultimate low-budget experience in grueling horror was released onto the unsuspecting public.
Controversial for it’s extremely graphic violence Raimi’s feature length debut was initially turned down by almost all U.S. Film distributors. When the movie was finally picked up by Irvin Shapiro in 1982 and given a foreign release, followed by a domestic release shortly afterwards, it was savaged by the hands of the censors and was even banned outright in certain countries…
“The ultimate experience in grueling terror.”
Call it a sequel, call it a re-make, call it a stand-alone film, call it whatever you like but Evil Dead II is still one of the daddies of the horror genre. A culmination of raw talent, smart ideas, excellent execution and Ash, Evil Dead II is the business.
Our hero Ash returns, or continues (or whatever) his duel with the Candarian demons or deadites, in the follow-up to Sam Raimi’s classic The Evil Dead. Surviving the first night against the forces of evil, can Ash survive again and stop these horrors from hell?
“Kiss your nerves good-bye!”
Ash is back and is ready to hand out some boomstick punishment in the third of the Evil Dead trilogy.
Following a harrowing night of demonic possession in Evil Dead II, unassuming store clerk Ash is time-warped into England’s Dark Ages, where he must find the Necronomicon, a compendium of the black arts, before he can return home. Fortunately, he has time to romance a beautiful princess, tune up his chainsaw hand, and battle an army of skeletons led by himself.
