Helldriver Hits DVD & Blu-ray This November

Yoshihiro Nishimura’s Japanese zombie flick Helldriver has been my most anticipated zombie films of the past few years, it looks awesome! So its great to know that this one will be heading to the U.S. very soon. Date is set for a November 1st release.


“An alien-spawned, mysterious mist blankets the northern half of Japan, transforming those who inhale it into ravenous, flesh-eating zombies hell-bent on devouring the surviving human population. Plunged into chaos, Japan is torn in two—€”the southern half of the country, where the populace remains untouched by the deadly gas, lives behind a heavily-fortified wall, while the northern half is a lawless, zombie-infected wasteland. Political forces are locked in a stalemate over whether the living dead should remain protected as family members or exterminated like a plague. Hope arrives in the form of Kika (Yumiko Hara), a beautiful high school girl armed with a chainsaw sword powered by an artificial heart. Recruited by the government, Kika leads a ragtag group of desperados on a secret mission into the zombie-infected wilds to exterminate zombie queen Rikka (Eihi Shiina TOKYO GORE POLICE) and put an end to the plague of the living dead.”
