A meteorite hits Kika’s crazy cannibalistic mother and all hell breaks loose. Her mother is infested with some sort of a zombie virus, and gathers an army of flesh-eating motherfuckers that divides Japan. Kika will do everything in her power to get back at her mother and get her pumping heart back(!).

It’s not about it being inventive, original or creative enough. It’s so freaking fussy. The CGI is a drag, but there are other cool effects, but in the end it’s just a mess. Still: Entertaining, intense and gory as fuck. Yumiko Hara is a great leading lady though.
