Whats up guys,

We are launching DEATH KAPPA on site today to everyone in the North America region in ad-supported streaming for all the free users. The best part is that it is a full-length feature film! WOo~

DEATH KAPPA is an “old school” daikaiju movie from the creators of THE MACHINE GIRL and TOKYO GORE POLICE. The director is Tomoo Haraguchi, the celebrated make-up, creature and effects maestro whose FX credits include the last four Gamera films, ASHURA, UZUMAKI, RING 0 and Showtime’s MASTERS OF HORROR series.

Haraguchi's goal for DEATH KAPPA was to shun modern computer effects technology in favor of “classic” old-fashioned miniature work and man-in-suit technology -- an homage to the monster movies of his youth.



DEATH KAPPA slayed the critics in these early reviews:
"Reinvents the Godzilla mythos as a lo-fi valentine to scale-model destruction." - The Wall Street Journal

“A double-barreled blast of 80's VHS nostalgia, DEATH KAPPA is the ultimate lo-fi giant monster movie! Produced by the same evil geniuses who made THE MACHINE GIRL, DEATH TRANCE and TOKYO GORE POLICE.”
- subwaycinema.com

“Sick of waiting for another round of Gamera vs. Whatever, or Gojira vs. Roland Emmerich? Now we bring you DEATH KAPPA, the tale of a mischievous, child-eating sprite who has grown big enough to stomp Tokyo.”
- io9.com

Let's whet your appetite even more with the plot breakdown:

"The kappa, in Japanese folklore, are water goblins that are closely associated with a certain town in Japan. Unfortunately, as it turns out, that area is also home to a militant splinter group of researchers dedicated to developing amphibious super soldiers based on the kappa of legend. When their experiments result in murders by some escapees, the appearance of an actual kappa, and the triggering of an atomic bomb, the consequences are of epic proportions. A monster arrives in the midst of the nuclear fallout, and Japan’s defenses are helpless against it. Mankind’s only savior is an irradiated water goblin that is on the rampage with death in its eyes!"

Enjoy and let us know what you think of this full-length feature film!
