About this deal

So cue lots of creative, but cheaply knocked up blood and gore make-up effects and some mildly amusing slapstick moments. There’s the La Casa series in Italy, wherein unrelated movies (including House II and House III, but not the original House! The references to the former 80s video nasty can’t be ignored though this film can’t really compete with the original Sam Raimi classic.

A family in a rural home struggles to survive after mom Mawarni Suwono’s long battle with illness dried up all the royalties from her once-lucrative music career. Once they’re inside, the angry presence of a young woman won’t let them leave, and it’s not long before she starts possessing them. André Øvredal goes full throttle for the scares in this quiet little chiller that sees a father and son coroner team stumped over the bizarre mysteries contained within the body of an unidentified young woman.While the film was just recently released, it was actually filmed way back in 1995, so that genuine grainy old school look really IS genuine, as are the classic mix of cheesy and cool practical effects. An impalement with an barbell is preceded with his frenzied attempts to loosen its collars and get the weights off the bar.

What will confuse people (if they are looking for anything to make sense that is) is what does bodybuilding have to do with it? Although no one does it quite like Raimi, Fukazawa admirably attempts to emulate his kinetic ingenuity. Other than the main character having big muscles and using a few weights to impale corpses and smash body pieces, there isn’t really much of a body-building theme. I'm checking out Bloody Muscle Body Builder in Hell (2012) purely because of the catchy title and how the movie marketing itself out to be The Japanese version of Evil Dead so naturally, as a big fan of low budget horror movies like I am this movie seems like it right up my alley and after 60 minutes I can tell you guys that this movie freaking deliver what it promises. The film - an ultra low budget Japanese Evil Dead rip off - is actually about as clunky as the title.

Bloody Muscle Body Builder in Hell is one that fans of SOV and WTF films as well as Deadites should enjoy. He cites Dawn of the Dead as the movie that made him a horror fan, but it was seeing Army of Darkness that inspired him to entertain audiences. The film also manages to create an eerie atmosphere from the start too to make things a bit more nightmarish.
