Plot Synopsis:

Mondo Macabro presents HIRUKO THE GOBLIN - A Shinya Tsukamoto film, based on the popular manga, "Yôkai Hantâ" (Yokai Hunter).

Hieda (played by Kenji Sawada) is an eccentric archaeologist, disgraced among his peers for his theories on the supernatural. One day he receives a letter from his brother-in-law, Yabe, telling him of an ancient burial mound he has discovered in the grounds of the local high school, a discovery that might help prove Hieda's theories to be true. When Hieda arrives at the school, which is now closed for summer vacation, he discovers that Yabe has gone missing, along with one of the school's female pupils. Teaming up with Yabe's son, Masao, Hieda searches for the ancient tomb, convinced that it might be the burial place of Hiruko, a fearsome demon from ancient legends.

This was director Tsukamoto's second feature film, after the surprise success of TETSUO: THE IRON MAN. Based on a Japanese manga series, HIRUKO THE GOBLIN is an astonishing melding of Lovecraftian cosmic terror, cyberpunk splatter and Spielberg-style adventure. With brain busting special effects and an amazing array of hideous demon creatures, the film is a roller coaster ride into a unique world of terror and beauty from one of the world's greatest filmmakers.
