In general, the apocalypse is widely considered to be a bad thing. However, you toss some a schoolgirl who rocks a kyudo bow into the mix and we may consider hanging around for awhile. John Cairn’s SCHOOLGIRL APOCALYPSE hits the 2012 Fantasia Fest this coming Monday and we have a look at some new stills. Readers of the sire know we’ve had our eyes on this and these pics are just making us jones a little more. The film is available now in iTunes.
Japanese schoolgirl Sakura (Higarino) has her idyllic small-town life turned inside-out when the local males start savagely killing the females. Armed with only her kyudo bow for protection and an English textbook for comfort, Sakura journeys through an apocalyptic world of mayhem. As trauma from witnessing the violent deaths of friends and family drives her toward madness, Sakura takes refuge in an animated dreamworld where she meets Billy (Mackenzie), a character from her English text! Billy helps her survive murderous zombies, as well as an even more formidable foe in Aoi (Tsujimoto), as she races to find real-world Billy and answers to the questions: Why is all this happening? And who or what is behind it?
See you on forty deuce,
