Movie Info

The producers of Machine Girl and Tokyo Gore Police team with the special effects wizard behind Uzumaki and Gamera 3 to deliver a spirited kaiju romp about a mischievous yokai that threatens to decimate Tokyo. Kanako left for Tokyo with dreams of success. When those dreams fail to materialize, she returns to her village in shame and moves in with her elderly grandmother, the caretaker for the local river spirit. Before long, Kanako has taken over her grandmother's responsibilities, dutifully feeding the kappa a steady diet of cucumbers and regularly cleaning its shrine. Trouble starts to brew, however, when a team of World War II scientists attempt to transform the kappa into a weapon of war, and instead unleash a devastating force of destruction on the unsuspecting citizens of Japan.

Audience Reviews for Death Kappa


A unsuccessful parody of the Daikaiju genre, there's more to shake one's head at than to laugh at. The monster suits are fine, the basic plot is decent but the messy subplots and constant style changes really affect it. The final monster battle is fun, abet silly, but it's not enough to justify any of the things that came before it.

As much as I hate "Big Man Japan", I hate this film even more. The film practically has 2 seperate plots, with the 1st leading to the 2nd. It's effects are cheesy and crappy, it's actors are terrible in films, and while I don't know a thing about Fever Dreams Production, I know a thing or 2 about films, and this is no film. THIS...IS...S**T!

Tongue-in-cheek, but loving, homage to low budget kaiju (giant monster) films. Nonsensical story, intentionally cheesy effects, and much goofiness from the writer of The Calamari Wrestler and Executive Koala. A fun time for kaiju fans.
