“Corpse Party” is a Japanese horror movie based on the popular Corpse Party (not including Corpse Party 2) game franchise. The film’s main plot shared characteristics and events from both the first game (Corpse Party: Blood Covered Repeated Fear) and the game’s anime adaptation (Corpse Party: Tortured Souls). Though there are many characters in both the game and the anime, the movie cut a few characters out and only showed the main nine characters.
Film: “Corpse Party”
Release Date: August 1, 2015
Director: Masafumi Yamada
Duration: 93 minutes
Overall, “Corpse Party” wasn’t full blown terrible. While it did cover a good amount of horror blood and guts, the portrayal of the storyline definitely didn’t do the game justice. The story leaned more towards the anime rather than the actual game, meaning it contained it’s own and the anime’s plot holes. This was probably because film makers couldn’t cram the average 10-15 hours gameplay into an under 100 minutes screentime.
