Exciting adventures in a zombie-powered Steampunk world.
Ever wonder what the world would be like if the British Empire had been built upon a working class of reanimated corpses? Welcome to The Empire of Corpses. Director Ryotaro Makihara delivers a highly stylized, hold-onto-the-seat-of-your-pants, modern anime adventure where corpse reanimation technology is so successful that it threatens to topple the living population. John Watson, a brilliant medical student, has been invited to join the UK's exclusive secret society to unearth the memoirs of Victor Frankenstein himself. What John doesn't know is that the rabbit hole of the soulless meanders down a harrowing, bizarre path of chaos and turmoil—leading to a very bad case of monster pie! It's an exciting and visually stunning experience and a welcome addition to the science fiction genre. - Jane Henning
