About LONE WOLF AND CUB: WHITE HEAVEN IN HELL

Having run out of existing new stories from Kazuo Koike’s manga to adapt – the manga’s astounding final story arc had not yet been written at the time – for the final Lone Wolf and Cub film, star Tomisaburo Wakayama took over and decided to make the sort of wild movie he’d always wanted to: one in which Lone Wolf battles zombies and Daigoro’s baby cart zips improbably across an icy landscape on skis. With resurrected Yagyu clan warriors and a creepy horror film vibe not previously seen in the series, it’s all just preamble to White Heaven in Hell’s incredible finale: a massive battle in the snow, featuring over a hundred sword-waving stuntmen, pro athletes, and local skiers, that took a month and a half to film. The excess and action that follows conclude the Lone Wolf and Cub series on a high note of jaw-dropping achievement.
