Evil Dead Trap [DVD] [1988]

Toshiharu Ikeda's horror thriller Evil Dead Trap comes to DVD with a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1.

Overview

Synopsis

Evil Dead Trap
Toshiharu Ikeda directed this provocative horror film which spawned two sequels. Miyuki Ono stars as Nami, a talk-show hostess who receives a grotesque snuff video in the mail. She is outraged as she sees a young woman horribly murdered on the tape, complete with a truly foul sequence in which a blade is graphically plunged into the victim's eyeball. With her crew, Nami decides to track down the killer, leading her to an abandoned factory where her crew is repulsively slaughtered one by one. The outlandish ending depicts a man giving birth to his own split personality. Fumi Katsuragi, Hitomi Kobayashi, and Eriko Nakagawa co-star in this sickening but riveting slasher, which closely imitates Italian thrillers by Dario Argento and Lamberto Bava in style. The unrelated Shiryo No Wana 2: Hideki (1991) followed. All three films in the series were written by Takashi Ishii. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi
