Tokyo Gore Police (2008)

Ridiculous comic gore at its best! The film is like watching a live action anime, with literal fountains of blood and insane effects. The Tokyo Police Force is privatized after The Engineers, living bio-weapon killers, begin invading the city. A female cop must destroy them while searching for her father's killer. The plot is non-sequitor at times and definitely secondary to the effects, but the visuals keep the film interesting the entire time. On top of a bright color palette, the costumes, editing, and design all feel like a living comic book. The comedic tone and timing contribute just as much to the fun of the movie as the absurd amount of blood. For straight Horror fans, this may be a little too off the wall, but if gore is your game, this is an absolute must see, must own!

Rating: 8/10.
Gore: 10/10.

  1. I've had this in my "to watch/to review" stack o' DVD's for quite some time, but I never seem to find the time to sit down n' give it a viewing. I been dying to see it though. From everything I've heard, this seems primed to become my new favorite movie.

  5. I'm in the same boat as William Weird. I've been sitting on this one for about two months or so since it came out on DVD and keep putting it off. I watched about 20 minutes of it and never got around to finishing it. I might watch this soon with Miike's "Happiness of the Katakuris" for some back-to-back Japanese weirdness. Good stuff!

  6. Oddly enough I just watched this and blogged about it as well. I likened it to a cross between Versus, Dead Alive and Videodrome. Your comparison to anime is spot on though. The blood fountains are insane. This could be a fun one to watch with some friends.
