Asian horror distributor Terror Cotta have announced their next (somewhat unexpected) release, director Shinichi Fukazawa’s Japanese splatter comedy Bloody Muscle Builder in Hell (aka The Japanese Evil Dead), which comes to the UK next year!
From the land famous for cursed VHS tapes, comes a ‘forgotten video nasty’. Unleashed from a mysterious Tokyo cellar and available for the first time in the UK, the Bloody Muscle Body Builder in Hell invites fans of bizarro, lo-fi cinema on a far out journey… into hell.
After a surprise phone call interrupts his daily workout, beefy body builder Shinji agrees to meet his photojournalist ex-girlfriend to help with her research on haunted houses. Accompanied by a professional psychic, they visit an abandoned house once owned by Shinji’s father. But inside the house a dark secret lingers and they find themselves trapped and tormented by a relentless ghost with a 30 year grudge…
Terror Cotta’s release of Bloody Muscle Builder in Hell will be the first with English subtitles and features original artwork from Graham Humphreys (artwork designer for Sam Raimi’s original Evil Dead series).
