Genocide

Genocide

The insects are taking over in this nasty piece of disaster horror directed by Kazui Nihonmatsu. A group of military personnel transporting a hydrogen bomb are left to figure out how and why swarms of killer bugs took down their plane; the answer is more deliriously nihilistic—and convoluted—than you could imagine. Also known as War of the Insects, Genocide enacts a cracked doomsday scenario like no other.

Eclipse Series 37: When Horror Came to Shochiku

For a brief, shining moment, the genteel Japanese studio mutated into a fun house of grim ghouls and slimy aliens.
