Samurai Reincarnation (1981) directed by Kinji Fukusaku (Battle Royale) is a spectacular chanbara fantasy epic, with a stellar cast of Japanese actors (Sonny Chiba, Hiroyuki Sanada, Ken Ogata, Kenji Sawada and Akiko Kana).
Released on blu ray from Eureka in this limited number slipcase edition.
In the aftermath of a failed rebellion, Amakusa Shiro (Kenji Sawada) is crucified, but returns as a vengeance-filled demon with the power to resurrect the dead. Shiro uses his power to assemble a team of undead warriors—including legendary swordsman Miyamoto Musashi (Ken Ogata)—and the only one who can stop them is the wandering samurai, Yagyu Jubei (Sonny Chiba).
