Movie Reviews

Best. Koala Slasher. Ever.
C. Christopher Blackshere | I am the devil's reject | 03/22/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This ain't Australia! Only from Japan could we get a 6ft. psyko-ala bear. This killer furball ain't playing around!

The cute cuddly dude's name is Tamura. He's your basic suit and tie business exec that has some serious 5 o'clock shadow. Beneath the grey fur he's a pretty nice normal guy.
But one day his beautiful girlfriend turns up dead, and he is the chief suspect. Tamura is forced to enlist the help of his boss(a white rabbit) and a nearby convience store clerk(a frog).

This is of course some silly arthouse cinema, but it is often hilarious. These large hairy creatures are integrated pretty naturally into society, and nothing is ever explained.
I'll admit, I was hoping to see some sweaty girl-on-koala action, but no such luck. Phooey! Plus the bloody carnage and campiness was much less than I expected, which was a tad dissappointing.
Still there is some nice koala kung-fu fighting and good satire. Not bad.

FINAL GRADE 3.5 Stars, rounded up for originality."
