Dust off your VHS players!  To celebrate the DVD release of Japanese comedy horror BLOODY MUSCLE BODY BUILDER IN HELL (AKA THE JAPANESE EVIL

DEAD), Asian horror specialist Terror Cotta are releasing Shinichi Fukazawa’s ketch-up soaked splatter-fest as a limited edition VHS tape.

Available now, only from Terracotta Distribution’s online store:

Trapped inside a haunted house, a bewildered body builder battles a gruesome ghost, hell-bent on revenge in a demented, tongue-in-cheek horror. Originally released in Japan as The Japanese Evil Dead, BLOODY MUSCLE BODY BUILDER is an affectionate tribute to Sam Raimi’s EVIL DEAD films, featuring an incompetent, square-jawed anti-hero and grungy stop-motion effects.

Featuring original artwork by Graham Humphreys (THE EVIL DEAD, A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET) and available for the first time with English subtitles.

“… gory, insane and fun. Sayonara, baby …” Infernal Cinema

“… Shinichi Fukazawa’s splatter masterpiece …” Attack from Planet B

“… a stand out cult classic in the making.” 8/10 The Rotting Zombie


After a surprise phone call interrupts his daily workout, beefy body builder Naoto agrees to meet his photojournalist ex-girlfriend to help with her research on haunted houses. Accompanied by a professional psychic, they visit an abandoned house once owned by Naoto’s father. But inside the house a dark secret lingers and they find themselves trapped and tormented by a relentless ghost with a 30 year grudge.

From the land famous for cursed VHS tapes, comes a ‘forgotten video nasty’. Unleashed from a mysterious Tokyo cellar and available for the first time in the UK, the Bloody Muscle Body Builder invites fans of bizarro, lo-fi cinema on a far out journey … into hell.
