Movie Info

From Japanese special effects master Soichi Umezawa comes a singular horror experience in a wildly hilarious marriage of The Blob and The Evil Dead. After studying in Tokyo, Kaori returns to Aina Academy to finish her prep classes for art school. Quickly outshining her jealous classmates, she soon becomes the star of the class when she discovers a bag of old, mysterious clay and uses it for sculpting assignments. Things begin to get strange, however, when students' projects are destroyed and one of Kaori's classroom rivals disappears. As the students uncover that the clay is possessed by an artist who previously owned the building and died tragically in his workshop, the school finds itself attacked by a gang of murderous, bloodthirsty clay "vampires." The monsters begin to impersonate--and subsequently devour--the students, thus answering the age-old question: can art be so bad that it kills? Rest assured: you've never experienced a movie like Vampire Clay.

Critic Reviews for Vampire Clay (Chi o sû nendo)

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (4)

  • The film sports practical effects that reach Brian Yuzna-esque heights of giddy absurdity, including a Claymation sequence of a teenage girl being swallowed whole by a wormlike monster as she squirms and screams.

  • Umezawa's feats of stop-motion are undermined by his incoherent staging and editing, which substitute manic energy for the nuts-and-bolts of building tension and clarifying action.

    Top Critic
  • Evidently, "Vampire Clay" is as messy as its basic premise, but if one decides not to take it seriously, one will come across a rather entertaining experience, in splatter/b-movie/trash fashion.

    April 13, 2020 | Full Review…
  • The effects are both the best and worst part of the film, uncanny but also not scary and, at times, unintentionally funny.

    September 21, 2018 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • It may not stick in ones mind after the end of its 81 minute runtime, but it would be hard to not enjoy oneself while watching.

    July 20, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Monster movies are always a bit tongue-in-cheek going all the way back to the days of the guy in a rubber suit. Their goal is to make you smile and cheer when something crazy happens. In that regard, Vampire Clay succeeds.
