As citizens of a secluded village die off in alarming numbers, the head doctor tries desperately to save them-but his efforts are in vain. Panic and disillusionment run rampant as loved ones’ corpses rise from the grave with an insatiable thirst for human blood. Haunting and hallucinogenic, Shiki stares into the hearts of both the hunter and the hunted-and blurs the line between man and monster.
The next release in anime horror to hit the UK is the shonen series Shiki. At first glance, it could be assumed that it is a bog standard macabre tale with a goth-lolita twist.
