2018 Cult Movie Challenge: Anime (my list)
Death, disease, wanton destruction. Rape, mass murder and disembowelment. If you are still watching after the first ten minutes of Ninja Scroll then you are going to love this film.
I am admittedly a relative newcomer to manga anime, but Ninja Scroll was like nothing I have seen before. The trouble is that I am not sure if I have plunged straight in at the deep end or is it possible I am still in the paddling pool...
Being hyper critical, after the mind-blowing first ten minutes, it is almost impossible for the film ever to exceed that level of carnage, but the film does a great job of balancing action with fantastic weirdness and there is certainly never a dull moment.
Highly recommended. Any recommendations for similar films I should explore next would be gratefully received!
