Movie Info

Japanese horror icon Kiyoshi Kurosawa pays homage to the gruesome slasher flicks of the 1980s with the cutting tale of a young woman forced to do battle with a murderous security guard. It's Akiko's first day on the job at Department Twelve of the Akebono Corporation, and needless to say, her short-fused managers and callous co-workers do little to make her feel comfortable in her new work environment. Things quickly go from bad to worse, however, when Akiko finds herself trapped in the enormous building and forced to do battle with a psychotic security guard with a decidedly bloody approach to office security. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for The Guard from Underground

I watched this a while ago when Flixster hadn't added it yet, and it's a decent slasher, but nothing that'll stick with you. This is a humble beginning for Kiyoshi Kurosawa, an auteur of distinct style who continues to go utterly undernoticed. There's probably no real value in this except for fans of his.

Well picked up this film from Artsmagic DVD web site ( The Japanese Film Specialist. I often just go to a web site and pick a film they feature. This one was made in 1992, and the first thing that came to mind when watching this film, is didn't Japan have Cell Phones in 1992. I am sure they did. Anyway its a B Type Movie, some call it a Eighties Slasher Flix, but I can't put it in that category, as there was very little slashing. Ex Sumo Wrestler is hired by security company and he turns into a serial killer, why, I have no idea as movie didn't explain that. But he?s a huge guy, my guess ex-Japanese Wrestler. Not much slashing but a lot of Bone breaking, I mean Snap, the bone is broken in half. The Film I review had English Subtitles, but no English Language except for Directors Comments. All in All a decent film but not much over 3 1/2 Stars.
