Action, horror, sci-fi and comedy all blended into the New Year DVD package ‘Alien vs. Ninja’. Seiji Chiba’s exploitation Japanese flick hits DVD shelves next February both in the UK and the US (see dates below). Mika Hijii, Ben Hiura, Shûji Kashiwabara, Masanori Mimoto, Yûki Ogoe and Donpei Tsuchihira all star in this gory action-laden serving from the ‘Evil Ninja’ writer and director.
“Once there was a band of great Ninja warriors led by Yamata called Iga Ninja. Returning from a deadly mission they witness a flash in the sky and a roaring giant ball of fire crashes into the distant forest. The warriors rush into the deep woods in an attempt to identify the mysterious fireball. There, instead of finding predicted enemies, they are stunned to face never-seen-before creatures with claws and fangs! The hungry brutal aliens start to savage and feast on the Ninja warriors, leaving only a few to survive. Yamata and his warriors swear to avenge their comrades deaths and risk their lives to challenge the aliens. However, none of the Ninja weapons, neither their swords nor their throwing stars, has any affect on the alien warriors.”
‘Alien vs. Ninja’ will arrive on DVD here in the UK (rated 18) on 7 February, courtesy of Revolver Entertainment. Funimation will be dealing with the stateside DVD release for 22 February.
