Versus (2000) A pair of escaped convicts meet up with a group of gangsters by a remote forest road. After an arguement over a girl the mobsters have kidnapped, shots are fired and one of the gangsters is killed. The standoff is cut short, however, when the dead man suddenly springs to life and starts trying to kill his former friends. The zombie eventually goes down in a hail bullets, but their problems aren't over. It seems the gangsters have been using this forest to dispose of of their victims, all of whom are now looking to settle some old scores. Even if they get through this mess, there is still the question of why they've arranged to meet the convicts out here, and why they've brought along the girl. How are they connected to the dead bodies coming back to life?

Movie Quote(s):
  • [after kicking away a severed zombie head] Prisoner KSC2-303: I'll play with you later.
  • [Shooting someone in the gut] Head Yakuza: Die slowly, okay? We don't want you coming back alive on us.
  • Girl: You can't just hurt people for no reason! Prisoner KSC2-303: A lot of people are better off dead. Girl: That's not for you to judge! Prisoner KSC2-303: What're you, a preacher?
  • Girl: I can't remember anything that happened before I got here. Prisoner KSC2-303: Yeah, right. Girl: How about you? Why were you in prison? Prisoner KSC2-303: Well, I was... Girl: You don't remember either? Prisoner KSC2-303: I, uh, forget things easily. Girl: Oh... you, too!
  • Undead Thug: You'll need an army to kill me. I'll give you untold power... in death!
Movie Trivia:
  • In the scene where Tak Sakaguchi's character holds a pistol in his mouth, the director originally called for him to rack the slide with his teeth. He tried this, and broke a tooth. One of the zombies was played by a dentist, and fixed it for him.
  • In the aftermath of a few of the zombie fights, several zombies' butts are on fire. Director Ryűhei Kitamura did this on purpose, because he just thought it was funny.
  • The cast, crew, and director (who call themselves Team Versus) had so much fun making this film that director Ryűhei Kitamura purposely filmed the movie with no ending, with hopes that they would be able to make a sequel. The DVD has proved to be a cult success in both the U.S. and Japan, so Japanese film companies have green-lit the sequel and given it (supposedly) an exponentially higher budget. Team Versus plans on principal photography in mid-2005.
  • Video game producer-director Hideo Kojima (of "Metal Gear" fame) was an extra in the film. Kitamura, as a friend, was later handpicked to direct Kojima's remake of "Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes." Versus is attributed to heavily influencing the sword-fighting scenes in the game.
