Today’s Random Tokusatsu: Dragonhead (2003)

Today’s selection: Dragonhead (2003, dir. George Iida)

Subgenre: Disaster

Available from: Media Blasters

Dragonhead is based on Minetaro Yoshizuki’s manga (released in English from Tokyopop) about the immediate following of an apocalyptic disaster, following the depressing plight of some surviving high-schoolers. While the cast is good and the effects (from Shinji Higuchi) are mostly top-notch, the grimdark tone of the thing has never really been to my taste. Honestly, I  sort of forgot about the film until the randomizer brought it up.
