A brutal gang war hits new lows when it’s revealed that one of the bosses orchestrating the violence is a powerful vampire. When boss Kamiura passes his ancient powers on to one of his underlings chaos reigns, causing a rival syndicate to call in “the world’s toughest terrorist,” which is either a man in a frog suit or some kind of celestial, martial-arts slinging frog monster. “The film is a tooth-rotting, mind-scrambling aspartame rush of nonsense, but its brilliance stems from the director’s flat refusal to distinguish between the sublime and the ridiculous.” – Robbie Collin, The Telegraph.
