Synopsis

Bring a rain coat, you’re going to need it:  TOKYO GORE POLICE may very well be the bloodiest film ever made.  From the same team that brought us cult hits THE MACHINE GIRL, MEATBALL MACHINE and DEATH TRANCE, TGP stars AUDITION’S Eihi Shiina as a cop who must hunt down and kill the deadly Engineers:  mutant creatures that sprout bizarre weapons from any injury.  Blood soaked doesn’t even begin to describe it.  Transgressive doesn’t go nearly far enough.  Loaded with extreme violence, bizarre creatures and a viciously satiric sense of humour this is cult film making at its finest.
- Todd Brown
