The Horror Geek presents: Chanbara beauty slashes her way to DVD

Awhile back, I reviewed a game called Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Zombie Squad here at The Horror Geek website. The game wasn't great (it was repetitive, translated in pure "Engrish", and had environments that looked like something straight out of a low budget first generation PlayStation 2 game), but I liked it for the cheese factor (half-naked chicks running around killing zombies with swords is a win in my book) and geysers of blood.

I knew a film version was in the works (and I've been looking forward to it, honestly) and now NipponCinema brings us an official poster, synopsis, and release date for the movie.

According to the site, Media Blasters will be releasing the film (which has been retitled to Chanbara Beauty: The Movie) in August. Here's the pertinent info:

Based on a hack-n-slash video game series, the story revolves around a scantily-clad girl named Aya (Eri Otoguro), her little sister Saki (Chise Nakamura), and a mysterious gun-toting leather chick named Reiko (Manami Hashimoto) who must protect their dystopic metropolis from a marauding zombie attack.

Early details on the technical specs are as follows:

Region 1, NTSC, anamorphic widescreen. Japanese audio with English subtitles. Disc includes commentary track by director. More specs + features TBA.

This trailer's been around for awhile, but if you haven't seen it already, have a look.
