Synopsis: Set in the present where a group of ruthless gangsters, an unknown woman and an escaped convict have met, unwittingly, in The Forest of Resurrection, the 444th portal to the other side. Their troubles start when those once killed and buried in the forest come back from the dead, with the assistance of the evil Sprit that has also come back, come back from ages past, to claim his prize. The final standoff between Light and Dark has never been so cunning, so brutal and so deadly. This is where old Japanese Samurai mysticism meets the new world of the gangster and the gun. Gruesome, bloody and positively bold.

There are 666 portals that

connect this world to the other side.

These are concealed

from all human beings.

But there are some

who notice their existence.

And some are willing to open the door

and try to gain the power of darkness...

Somewhere in Japan exists

the 444th portal, known as...

The Forest of Resurrection.

It was a long time ago when the

evil soul uncovered its existence...

This way.

You better be right.

It's okay.

Just trust me.

Where are they?

Don't worry. They're coming.

I'm not worried.

I just don't trust you.

Do as you please then.

It's quite a big deal

for a pickup, isn't it?

Where's the other car?

We gotta wait for him.

Then we'll leave.

Are you serious?

It's not safe here.

It doesn't matter.

We have specific orders from him.

Look, the roads

could be blocked by now.

We gotta go!

What about roadblocks?

That's not our concern.

Hey, you...

Shut up, what the hell

are we doing here anyway?

No, you shut up.

An order is an order, stop whining.

To hell with those orders!

Do you know what we

had to go through for this?

Besides, this place

gives me the creeps.

Don't bother.

These a**holes can't

do anything but follow orders.


On your way to a party?

Or are you trying

to promote hoodlums?


Better watch your mouth.

After all this running around...

...all we get is

a useless bunch of punks.

Count me out.

I see.

So shall I give

you some time to rest?

Like forever?


We were also ordered

to keep this guy alive.

Shut up!

Come on, come on, come on!

I don't understand

why this one is so special.

But you have

to follow orders too, right?

Don't be so nosy.

Wait a minute!

Calm down, all right?

You'd better be quiet too.

Don't be so tense.

Fighting wouldn't do

any good here, right?

That goes for you too.

We'll let you get out of here

when he comes, so be patient.

You know what?

I really hate waiting.

Stop it for now. It's not a good time.

That's right...

There's still...

After he gets here...

We'd better get out of here quick.

No matter how many times

we come here, I hate this place.

It's ominous.

A forest to the southwest

is an ominous feng shui sign.

Oh, really?

Meeting with you

guys is ominous enough.

I told you to shut up.

Don't start again!


Bring the girl.

Hey, what's with this girI?

Who knows?

The order was to kidnap

her and bring her here with us.

One stupid girl and one a**hole...

What the hell is he

planning to do with those two?

I don't have the slightest

idea what he's thinking!

Hey, come on.

He must have some plan.

Hey, wait.

I'm taking no part in kidnapping.


What did you say?

Five men on one girl,

you must be proud of yourself.

Hey, let her go

and take off your toupee.

Shut the f*** up!

Do you know who you're talking to?

Perhaps you're misunderstanding

the situation, hmm?

A crook like you could be spending the rest

of your life in jail if we weren't here.

So just shut your

smart-ass mouth up!

Here's the thing... I'm a feminist.

What're you gonna do about it?

Hey, you, let her go now.

Watch it.

I'm telling you,

you should just let her go now.

Hey, are you crazy or what?

Don't make me tell you again.

Let her go right now

or you'll pay for it later.

So what are you going

to do now, tough guy?

Where did they go?

It's scary here.

I'll kill that guy.

No, you shouldn't do that.

If you do, he'll become

a monster like them.

I don't get it...

You know what?

Then I can kill the bastard twice.

That's nonsense.

This is not good.

Let's get out of here.

Don't be stupid.
