Zeiram (Japan 1991)

Rating: ***
Alternate Title: Zeram (U.S. Title)
Director: Keita Amemiya
Cast: Yuko Moriyama

A nasty monster named "Zeiram" has escaped and heads for Earth. Bounty hunters Iria (awesome Yuko Moriyama) and Bob (her computer partner) are assigned to recapture him, and set up an interdimensional trap for him. But then, a couple of bumbling electricians get involved and everything becomes a mess. Very cool. Great special effects, and Yuko Moriyama is an intergalactic bounty hunter who knows how to gets things done. Her performance is not as powerful as it is in "Zeiram 2", but the story and effects make up for it.
