About this deal

Being hailed as "the Japanese Evil Dead" it's easy to see why since most of the story seems lifted right out of the original manuscript. Trapped inside a haunted house, a body builder must save himself from a gruesome ghost hell-bent on revenge.

What it does feel like though is Shinichi Fukazawa’s love letter to what Evil Dead was – and the impact it made in Japan.When he’s given three unsolvable case files, he embarks on a journey that shakes his cynicism to its core. Only, as the prologue reveals, Naoto’s dad had murdered his lover there 30 years earlier in the early ’70s, and buried her corpse beneath the floorboards. Written and directed by Stephen Cognetti, this faux-documentary style horror movie brings tons of thrills and chills. Unleashed from a mysterious Tokyo cellar and available for the first time in the UK, the Bloody Muscle Body Builder invites fans of bizarro lo-fi cinema on a far out journey .

Written, directed by, and starring Shinichi Fukazawa, this movie is an homage/spoof of Evil Dead, but also brings it's own dose of originality, and Fukazawa pulls it off with a cast of only 3 people.
