Death Kappa

Sunday, July 4, 2010

World premiere! The internet, cell phones, satellites. True. But also, the Yeti, the Loch Ness Monster, the Chupacabra. Science, but also monsters. Progress, but also monsters. We can destroy the germs that cause bad breath, yes, but still: monsters. A double-barreled blast of ’80s VHS nostalgia, DEATH KAPPA is the ultimate in lo-fi giant monster movies. Made by a team of over-qualified Godzilla technicians in their spare time, DEATH KAPPA is both stupider and smarter than it has any right to be. The kappa is a frisky folk spirit but a war with weaponized fishmen turns the kappa kaiju and soon Tokyo is nothing but toe jam. The world premiere of this handcrafted ode to redonkulous stupidity.
