A man suffering from excruciating stomach pains discovers that the last gateway to hell has just opened up in his gut, and attempts to prevent the demons of the underworld from crossing through his abs and wrecking havoc in our reality. Newlyweds Michael and Marianne had just moved into their home when Michael begins suffering from severe stomach pains. But this is much more than a simple ulcer, and when basic remedies fail to alleviate his pain Michael realizes that the problem is much more serious than he ever suspected. Demonologist Victor has made a fatal miscalculation, and as a result Michael's stomach has become a portal straight to hell. Realizing that there are people who would try and use this portal for the powers of evil, Michael and Marianne go on the run while doing battle with the horrific creatures that continually emerge from his stomach at the most inopportune times. Upon arriving in what appears to be a deserted town the couple quickly discovers that the monsters have taken over, and that it may already be too late to close the gate. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
Evil Dead 2 meets Street Fighter by way of The Matrix in this wild and woolly zombie/yakuza/samurai/kung fu/splatter flick directed by Ryuhei Kitamura. Throughout the world there are 666 portals to the other side; the 444th is Japan and is called the Forest of Resurrection, where good has battled evil for time immemorial. The film opens with prisoner KSC2-303 (Tak Sakaguchi) and his fellow cellmate escaping a maximum-security prison and ending up in the forest where they are supposedly to be picked up by a band of gangsters in a shiny Mercedes and taken to a safer place. Instead, the gangsters try to use them and a female hostage (Chieko Misaka) as pawns in a larger power struggle. A gunfight ensues killing KSC2-303's colleague and the mob boss, but just as the standoff is about to yield more violence, an odd thing happens -- the dead get up and attack the living. In the chaos, KSC2-303 and girl disappear into the forest with a band of slickly coifed yakuza in hot pursuit. High-kicks, machine guns, and rampant disembowelments ensue. This film was screened at the 2001 Toronto Film Festival. ~ Jonathan Crow, All Movie Guide
Hopelessly addicted to orgy fantasies and creatively stifled as he attempts to complete his book about a lonely stick figure seeking a portal into the three-dimensional world, eccentric aspiring author named Baxter Goode finds his quest to achieve personal and professional fulfillment continually stifled by his search for the woman he believes will finally liberate him from his distracting sexual hang-ups. Baxter's father is a best-selling Christian author who believes his son's immortal soul to be at risk, and even Baxter himself seems to wrestle with this belief as he attempts to work his personal problems out with God. Not even Baxter's lesbian roommate seems capable of helping him sort through his pressing problems with women, but then again she may be nothing more than another vivid figment of his overactive imagination. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
Includes - Mortal Kombat (1995), MPAA Rating: PG-13 Mortal Kombat: Annihilation (1997), MPAA Rating: PG-13 Mortal Kombat Three reluctant fighters are drafted for an intergalactic martial-arts tournament that will determine the fate of the human race in this special-effects-driven adventure. Inspired by the popular and notoriously bloody video game, Mortal Kombat provides a semblance of a plot as an excuse for rampant mayhem, with the evil alien forces challenging humanity to a kung fu battle to decide the Earth's fate. Following the failure of several previous human defenders, mankind's last chance lies with egotistical action film star Johnny Cage (Linden Ashby), tough but beautiful special agent Sonya Blade (Bridgette Wilson), and vengeance-minded hero Liu Kang (Robin Shou). Under the guidance of inspirational sorcerer Lord Rayden (Christopher Lambert), this unlikely trio faces off against a series of terrifying alien adversaries. As in the video game, the martial arts battles are the true point, with standard fighting combining with magical touches supplied by computer-generated effects. The dramatic content often resembles a Saturday morning cartoon, but Jonathan Scott Carlson's appropriately dank production design and the visually spectacular battle sequences made the film a hit amongst younger fantasy-action fans, spawning a sequel and a TV show. ~ Judd Blaise, All Movie Guide Mortal Kombat: Annihilation Just when you thought the game was over, along comes the second movie inspired by the popular video game Mortal Kombat. While Liu Kang (Robin Shou) led his warriors Princess Kitana (Talisa Soto), Sonya Blade (Sandra Hess), Rayden (James Remar), and Johnny Cage (Chris Conrad) to victory, and the safety of the world seemed certain, no one counted on the treachery of Shao-Kahn (Brian Thompson), the evil Emperor of the Outerworld, who has a new plan to overtake the Earth. Shao-Kahn has discovered a portal between Earth and Outerworld, and if it stays open for seven days, the two worlds will merge, with Shao-Kahn controlling both planets. Rayden and Sonya set out to find his colleague Jax (Lynn Red Williams), while Liu Kang and Kitana are on the trail of Nightwolf (Litefoot) as they race against time to defeat Shao-Kahn, who has brought Kitana's mother Queen Sindel (Musetta Vander) back from the grave to aid his evil scheme. Mortal Kombat II: Annihilation marked the directorial debut of cinematographer John R. Leonetti. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
