Reptile investigator Dragon Eye Morrison has possessed high-voltage superpowers ever since a childhood accident at a power station. With megawatts of power coursing through his body, he discharges his surplus energy by playing high voltage rock 'n' roll with his electric guitar. He spends his days looking for lost lizards in the alleyways of Tokyo, and his nights fighting the reptilian part of his brain that is making him increasingly violent. A shadowy figure named Thunderbolt Buddha soon surfaces and begins following Dragon Eye about town. A former TV repairman turned super-villain, Thunderbolt Buddha uses his high-powered love of technological devices to aid in his evil plans. Powered-up to the max in his electrical body suit, the two finally come face to face in an all out electrified rock 'n' roll battle for the supremacy of Tokyo!

Starring Japanese megastar Tadanobu Asano (ICHI THE KILLER, LAST LIFE IN THE UNIVERSE) as Dragon Eye Morrison, and directed by cult icon Sogo Ishii (BURST CITY, GOJOE), also starring Masatoshi Nagase (SUICIDE CIRCLE, STEREO FUTURE) as Thunderbolt Buddha. A hyperkinetic descent into electro-charged punk madness, set to an eardrum-shattering industrial punk/ noise soundtrack by Mach 1.67, ELECTRIC DRAGON 80,000 V transcends film to become an overwhelming, all-immersing experience. Nothing will prepare you for the assault on the senses that is ELECTRIC DRAGON 80,000 V!

 A staple of "weird" movie fan collections

The electric dragon is a reptile investigator, playing his guitar at night, and strapping himself into his electrically conductive bed at night - as a childhood electrocution has left him with a constant excess of 80,000v flowing through his body.

Thunderbolt Buddha is a TV service man, with electrical powers and his own plans for the world (carried out while wearing half a buddha mask), and must be stopped - but does anyone have the juice to stop him?

The battle is to be waged, in a low-budget hyperactive monochrome action flick which has all the charm and fun of any of the top of hollywood action flicks. Told in a comic-book style, this off-the-wall movie won't fail to entertain and deliver on its crazy promise.

The limited edition includes many extras and a soundtrack CD, including frame-by-frame FX walkthroughs, commentaries and sketches.

Highly recommended for asian cinema fans, especially those who like a little punk influence.
