VersusThis high octane, action packed gore fest starts with two escaped convicts making their way through some forest to meet up with their Yakuza buddies. Arriving at the rendezvous point, they meet up with their contacts but are surprised to see they've brought along a girl hostage for some reason.

One of the escapees isn't too happy about this and gets the impression that the Yakuza aren't really there to help them. So, grabbing a gun, he frees the girl and they take off into the forest with the remaining gang in hot pursuit. Hopelessly outnumbered, they soon find themselves cornered. But then, to everyone’s surprise, the dead gang members that were killed in the preceding shootout suddenly get back up and start attacking their former friends.

It turns out that the forest they’re in happens to be the 444th portal to the “other side” (wherever that is), and the Yakuza have unfortunately been using this place as a dumping ground for their victims. Now, all the people they’ve killed are rising back up out of the ground, and attacking anything that moves. Leading to a series of exceptionally gory running battles between the escaping couple, the pursuing Yakuza and the countless numbers of undead that are leaving their shallow graves in droves.

Perhaps more of an action film than a horror, “Versus” is still none-the-less a gore lovers delight. Filled with gunfights, violent martial arts action and blood by the bucket load. This is well worth seeking out
