17 year old schoolgirl Sakura visits a Samurai theme park called Survival Land with her friends where they’re supposed to go up against some cosplayers dressed as samurai but things go horribly wrong when one of the cosplayers gets infected after finding a strange flower in the theme park’s grounds and cutting it with his sword. Some black liquid sprays him in the face and the next thing we know he’s infecting the rest of his colleagues as they turn into zombies. Soon the game turns deadly as the undead cosplayers start attacking the girls with real weapons. They need to find a way to escape from the place and fast…..

I was really disappointed with this zombie movie. I thought that the combination of cute Japanese schoolgirls, a samurai theme park and zombies would be great. How wrong I was! Poor acting, shitty storyline and the special effects was crap. There’s hardly any blood and guts and what little there is isn’t very good. Some of the sequences made me shake my head: for example one of the girls is slit across the throat by a knife and there’s a spray of blood against a building but when you look at the wound itself there’s only a tiny scratch. Hardly enough for the deluge of blood that appeared on screen. Another laughable example is near the climax as another girl has a chainsaw to protect her from a zombie. We can hear the noise of a chainsaw running but when you look at it in the girls’s hands it’s quite clearly switched off. Just little things like that made this movie so bad. Sure, the cast are kawaii but if you can’t act then that’s not going to save a movie. I’ll probably watch the sequel just to see if there’s any improvement. Don’t bother with this unless you’re desperate.
