Anatomia Extinction (1995) coming to disc, maybe

Post by HungFist »

There's a new distributor in town, called Error_4444

And their first release will be Yoshihiro Nishimura's best film, Anatomia Extinction (1995).

Never thought that would come out officially! Tokyo Gore Police is a sort of remake of Anatomia Extinction, but ironically Anatomia looks much better for being shot on (16mm) film. It's super Tsukamoto esque, some shots I was sure Nishimura lifted from Tokyo Fist until I realized Anatomia was released before Fist. Anatomia is also a bit more cyber-punk horror than splatter compared to Tokyo Gore, but with all the gory handmade special effects you'd expect from Nishimura.

Now, details regarding the new release are sparse. It doesn't say if it will be on DVD, BD or what. And seems like their releases will be available exclusively from their own web shop. Whether they send overseas is unknown...

More info via facebook:

"We believe we’ll be able to offer worldwide shipping through our big cartel website. If not, we have alternatives in mind for everyone outside of the U.S.
As for the region of the disc, we’ll reveal the final details over the coming weeks! But we would prefer region free."

Well, I don't think Nishimura's film school friend who became a conservative politician (?) is in this one, so I guess that makes it possible? This and SPEAKERHEAD THE BOO (another fun early Nishimura short) made the festival rounds several years ago. I'd definitely be down for an official DVD/BD release of ANATOMIA EXTINCTION. It may actually be my favorite Nishimura film. The guy displayed some very exciting talent early in his career. Not sure what happened since. I mean, I theoretically could pop his latest film WELCOME TO JAPAN into my BD player right this minute and watch it but so far I have felt like my time on Earth is limited and there are more worthwhile things to do.

That, and the lack of Michael Jackson :lol:

(one episode in Paradox, 1984, is a remake of the Thriller music video, and I'm pretty sure Nishimura didn't license the music :lol: )

(Nishimura's version is better than the original, btw)

I think this is my favourite as well. Tokyo Gore and Vampire Girl are great too, and Helldriver can be a blast of you manage to ignore everything that is terribly wrong about it.

Looks to me like he's going down the good old ageing path ala Argento. And cheap digital (filming and effects) certainly doesn't help.

I also haven't bothered with Welcome to Japan. Or that new cooking comedy.
