Eko Eko Azarak: Wizard Of Darkness (Japan 1995)

Rating: ****
Director: Shimako Sato
Cast: Kimika Yoshino

What an awesome movie! Adapted from the shojo manga of the same title, this is a great late night scare fest featuring a shocking amount of blood and some steamy lesbian love scenes. Pretty Kimika Yoshino is a white witch named Kuroi Misa who has just been transferred to a new school. (she's not as much of a babe as she is in the sequel/prequel, but she's still very pretty) Immediately, strange things start happening and people begin dying in gruesome and unusual ways. She and twelve other students get trapped in the school one evening and tensions rise as the villain takes out all of the students one by one in order to complete a blood sacrifice to Lucifer. Extrememly well made and directed, with superb effects and a genuine feeling of terror.
