Horror triple-bill. 'Ichi the Killer' (2001) is the gruesomely violent adaptation of the Japanese manga series. Anjo, the boss of a Yakuza clan, has made off with all the clan's money, and the gang begin a merciless and bloody campaign to track him down, led by sado-masochism addict Kakihara who is suffering withdrawal symptoms from Anjo's incessant cruelty and violence. The main culprit emerges as Ichi, a mysterious psychopath with a dark childhood secret, who works for a retired Yakuza as an unstoppable killing machine. Kakihara is thrilled to have found a sadistic substitute for his departed boss, and is desperate to experience Ichi's ultimate brutality, even if it means death. In 'Embrace of the Vampire' (1994), a tortured vampire (played by Martin Kemp) is condemned to search for the reincarnation of his lost love, before he himself is doomed to eternal sleep. With just days to go, he discovers the spirit of his former partner now inhabits a shy young college student. In order to enflame her passion for him, he uses demonic dreams to turn her into a promiscuous, sex-craving young woman - anyone who threatens the vampire's imminent union with his bride will be destroyed. In 'Night of the Living Dead' (1968), one quiet morning, Barbara (Judith O'Dea) and Johnny's (Russell Streiner) visit to their father's grave is interrupted when Johnny is killed by a flesh-eating stranger. Barbara escapes to a nearby farmhouse, meets up with a few other desperate individuals, and prepares to do battle with the zombies who gather outside.
