I'm surprised no one has written a review for this yet, as I found it quite a pleasant surprise. Japan has given us some very interesting stories about zombies and demons in the past (the most famous probably being Resident Evil) and this movie is no exception.

Biohunter uses the age old plot device of a virus which leaves the infected with some rather nasty side effects. The show begins by illustrating a woman and her lover, both devoured by the disease. In the case of the young woman, she loses her sanity (and her good looks) while her lover is quite literally lunch. It read more

Bio Hunter is an interesting twist of John Carpenter's "The Thing" and "Ghost Busters", starring Akuma, and it really works out well for itself. This was a surprise turnout when considering the mean score of 6/10. I say, don't be fooled, Bio Hunter is nothing to pass up. It's one of the best examples of Madhouse's creativity working wonders in the past, and a reminder to why they are one of the best studios around.

Starting with the sights and sounds, Bio Hunter doesn't wimp-out. For sub-HD video, the entirety of the screen looks crisp with great color-depth and some nice grain. It fooled me, while read more

Not original. Similar to a couple older shows like ghost busters for example. Even though the question one would have are answered it fails to make the viewer captive. perhaps, it is due to the unrealistic approach the art has. Don't get me wrong the art is done nicely just not nerve raking. If you have seen any of the Saw movies you know what i mean. Those movies use very realistic effects and i get can't help but getting scared. Here i felt the need to yawn.

No complaints nor compliments.

background was covered but i would of have like to read more

Bio Hunter is a really fascinating tale of two biomolecular professors that try to unravel a mysterious retrovirus that is spreading through Japan. This virus has the ability to change its hosts into bloodthirsty monsters with increased strength and speed. One of the professors has been infected but his impeccable immune system has allowed him to remain in his human form and transform into his monster form. However, the professors are working against the clock as the virus spreads and the professor struggles with his monster side

Story - The story is a really unique fusion of supernatural lore and science. It is really enjoyable to read more
